What type of plastic is an alarm clock made from?

It's just a simple bed side alarm clock. It doesn't have to be the exact plastic. Just a plastic it could possibly be made from. I know the alarm clock has been made using injection moulding so the plastic must be able to be used for this type of form.


Need to know for technology. We had to disassemble something and then explain what each part was made from and why it was made from it.

    There is no set material that alarm clocks must be made of. Different parts may actually be made of different compounds (polymers, plastics). But, here are the most likely candidates in order of likeliness (in my opinion).

    Polystyrene - hard but slightly pliable, very low cost

    Polypropylene - more pliable than styrene and cheaper (may be cheapest)

    Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) more pliable than propylene but not as cheap

    Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) - very rigid, not really pliable, expensive

    Hope this helps.
