What is the Plastic Material of the iBike Pro (III)

For some unknown reason, my iBike was not properly attached to the handlebar mount and fell off my bike a few days day. It's mostly ok - except that the case broke open/came apart along the seam (gray bottom/ black top). It still works - if I hold the two halves together. But, that's not real practical for use during riding. Or any other time...

Anyway, I plan to glue it back to together. However, there are lots of plastics, with different glues/solvents. So, that be my question: does anyone know what type of plastic the iBike is made from (abs, eps, etc.) ?

Thanks!

Sad to say, but glue won't work. The springs will push the case apart.
