      • Polyethylene
      • HDPE
      • LDPE
        • Used in streched wrapping (Cling film), milk carton coatings. Chemical resistant, barrier water but not gases, tough/hard wearing, decorative when colored, floats on water, flexible.
      • PET
        • Used in drink bottles, excellent atmospheric gas barrier, does not flavour it's contents, crystal clear look
      • PVC
        • Used for toilet packaging, weather resistant, does not rot, chemical resistant, protects products moisture gases, holds in preservation gases, strong with good abrasion resistance, flexible
      • PP
      • PS,HDPS, expanded
      • Acrylic
      • Styrofoam
        • - Modeling material, its closed cells give it rigidity, high compression strength, easy to cut/shape with normal hand tools,
        • can be sanded for a smooth finish, can be glued with PVA. Can be sprayed with plastic and then sanded for a higher finish.
          • However it is weak, surface breaks easily and fine detail is hard to create, the surface can also be dinted when being filed.
