It's ABS.
How to Fix Broken Plastic Interior Automotive Trim Panels

PP plastic will be on newer cars, usually exterior panels or bumper covers etc. It's more rubberized and less brittle.
the lower panels are pp plastic actually. the aftermarket replacements are abs but the original lower door panels are pp. i learned how to read the labels on each panel. in parentheses' it will have an abbreviation for each plastic. lower panels are pp, armrests are pvc, cluster guage is abs, dash trim is abs and so on. so its a whole array of plastics used in the interior but for door original lower door panels in specific they are pp so if anyone is trying to attempt this repair you will need this 2 part adhesive called MMA 500 thats made specifically for pp/pe instead of 2 part epoxy.
