      1. Used to make signs and objects in 2D and 3D
      2. Polyvinyl sheet (PVC)
        1. Stiff, strong, tough and resists scratching
          1. Used to make 2D and 3D shapes and may be used for vacuum-forming
          2. High-density PVC foam
            1. Stiff, hard, tough and lightweight, with a good resistance to chemicals
              1. Machining of 2D and 3D shapes
              2. Polystyrene sheet (or styrene sheet)
                1. Lightweight, hard, stiff, transparent and brittle. Good water resistance
                  1. Used for vacuum-forming
                  2. Corrugated polypropylene
                    1. Lightweight and tough. Stiff, but not very strong. Hard but scratches easily. Resistant to chemicals.
                      1. Used for making large constructions
                      2. Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)
                        1. Strong, tough, hard, lightweight, and durable. A good surface finish and resistant to chemicals
                          1. Used to make square or round shaped tubes and is good for making structures. Corrugated polypropylene is available in a range of shapes and colours
                          2. Polystyrene foam (Styrofoam)
                            1. Brittle in tension, lightweight, with good heat and sound insulation
                              1. Available in blocks and used for product-modelling
                              2. Cellophane
                                1. Tough, hard, stiff, lightweight, transparent, and non-flammable
                                  1. Used for wrapping round products
                                  2. Polythene
                                    1. Hard, stiff and able to be sterilised
                                      1. Used to make bottles and for shrink-wrapping products.
