A thermoset or thermoplastic. Something that has a high thermal properties so as to retain it's properties when exposed to high temperatures emitted by the electronics. Something like ABS is good for resisting chemical and indoor environmental conditions. PC if you're going outside. Polyamide has very good electrical insulation properties.
