Engine bay plastic trim - What type plastic?

What type of plastic are the engine bay trim pieces? Is it Polypropylene, ABS, HDPE, etc...?
Need to repair a cracked engine cover.

Why not just get a lightly used one from a bone yard?

It's PP.

I believe it should be stamped under the cover somewhere.

Ok so Polypropylene. I did see a PP-TD40 next to the manufacturing date stamps. When I searched for PP-TD40 I didn't find anything that led me to a material type.
Thanks.
