Scale Plate Material

Does anyone know what the plates on the scales are made out of? We think it is polycarbonate, but we're not sure.

I have checked McMaster, they have the sheets, but in the "smooth" texture (not the "orange peel", which is what is in the drawing). Thank you for the suggestion!

Last year they used HDPE, with orange peel texture, for the gear slide. I believe it was available at Home Depot in the USA. Never found a source in Canada, with decent availability/price.
