Dosimetry simulations : composition of materials of interest and results ?

Dear fluka users,

This is an indirectly fluka-linked question.
I asumed that someone in the community of fluka users could answer to
the following questions : of course I searched elsewhere, find some, but
not everything I need in order to achieve a proper study.
The manufacturer stays strangely silent to my demand...

- Materials :
1) I'm looking for materials surrounding the french standard in RPL
dosimetry => Does anybody know the composition+approx density of some
mixture named "ABS resin" (acrylonitrile butadienne styrene) : I found
some general formulae but nothing really usable. It is the plastic box
surrounding the glass. If not, is there a similar material that could be
defined instead ?
2) I'm looking as well the characteristics of some fine aluminum foil
wrapping TLD dosimeters. It is not the usual aluminum foil, but this one
will also do the trick, I can't find any useful info as well.

- Previous results :
3) About results of such simulations : I found some made at CERN "RPL
dosimeter at CERN" but it deals with energies far away of those I'm
interested in : 50 keV to 1500-2000 keV at the most.
I am not looking to copy the work of anyone, only to have some
informations about the comparison (measurements versus fluka) at those

Does anyone want to share some information about those matters ?

Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards.
