Question regarding Standard Single Pole Toggle Switch wall type

I would like to know the material used in a standard wall type toggle switch. It is some kind of a plastic, but what is it exactly? Also what material is used in the cover plate?

Thanks

my guess

The lower end stuff is PVC with little plasticizer, the higher end and impact resistant stuff is nylon. Same with the faceplates.
