What exactly is a brittle plastic and what materials fall under that classification? I need to create aglass and brittle plastic registry, but I'm not sure which plastics are technically considered brittle?

If you drop it (or run it over with a forklift or something) and it cracks = brittle plastic.

If you drop it and it crinkles (instead of cracking) = non-brittle plastic (e.g. plastic films, etc.)
