Default Question about plastics

I can't remember my plastic acronyms, Is there a plastic that resin (any resin) won't stick to ? I know resin usually won't stick to a very smooth surface like glass, but is there are plastic that Resin won't adhere to at all?

I think Polypropylene qualifies. Most trash cans are made of it. It has to be flame treated before printing inks will stick to it, including epoxy.

Not sure what application you are going for, but I use silicone a lot. No, not a plastic, but still useful

The kitchen cutting mats (upstairs, left side, top right drawer... when Wifey is not looking) are excellent to glue segmented stuff on with wood glue, epoxy, CA. Bend the mat it pops off, bend it some more all the glue pops off.

Makes excellent casting molds also (i.e., silicone sets of flexible measuring cups).

Not many things stick to PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene). Perhaps better known under it's brand name, "Teflon".

I wondered about that, but remember seeing a kitless pen that used acetal as finials on the barrel and cap. (They might have been threaded, of course.)

Thought about Silicone, but need something non flexible.
McMaster has good pricing, Proto-type time :)
