polypropylene
i think that's the better one of the two
i might be mistaken though

it's whichever one more like rubber- so that if a rock hits the bumper, it won't crack

You sure it isn't "polyurethane"? I have never heard of a bumper made out of polypropylene. Like he stated above, I would lean towards the one that flexes more. I am betting it is a polyurethane bumper. BTW what brand is it? I have been eyeing the kit that Extreme Dimensions sells(made of a material that flexes called "duraflex") I just don't know how good it is.

abs is a harder material which does not flex very much, and when it does it tends to have stress fractures and breaks(although still much much much better then fiberglass).. polyurethane is more pliable, go with it if given the option.

always avoid fiberglass.

Yeah, it's polyurethane which is the flexible material.
