In Reply to: Looking for help to find a plastic that will fit the following posted by Garrett on 05/25/02 at 2:58 AM:

i thought it might be a good idea to add some more information. I'm looking for a plastic material that will hold up to the above criteria but the conition which it will be used in is fabricated into basic "boxes" which will be used for small reptile and/or bird inclosures, habitats, and "nurserys". This plastic will be exposed to heat lamps and/or heat pads. We have manufactered some units with ABS plastic, but i have seen products manufactered by another company that will go from white to yellow over several years in the ABS plastic. Now we have considered the UV protection coated ABS but again under long term use, ABS has proven to not only turn different colors but the material has become brittle under the conditions it will be exposed to. Another problem i have locating a good quality plastic is the need for something that will hold humidity very will in the structures that we will build from it. thanks for any help you can provide,Garrett
