Not sure what plastic it is, but they're not brittle.

If you want to know, here is the answer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graftonite.
You can find it out by Googling "Graftonite" - Simples!!

It is quite a tough material with a hardness/scratch resistance of 5 on the Mohs scale.

I like the accompanying image on that page...

... looks a bit basic for a mouthpiece though :)

So I imagine the mouthpiece is made of a combination of that material and plastic of some sort.......
