What plastic are Xbox 360 Controllers made from?


I’m talking about a specific plastic name (not a characterisation of plastic, like thermosetting etc.)
Sorry, I should have been more specific. It’s for a school A Level project, analysing a product. So it would be helpful to know the exact plastic. However thank you for your time to the guy who explained about painting it.

  1. Don’t know the exact name of the plastic material the controller is made of, but you probably want to know so you can Paint/color the stick. OXM (official xbox magazine=OXM) has a step by step instructional tutorial that will show you how to take it apart and paint in the correct order. Also in the article they describe the plastic and what type spary to use. Good luck
