As a starting point, I would suggest using the "scintillation" properties (fast response, slow response, emission spectrum, etc) from your actual scintillating material, and using "optical" properties (absorption spectrum, index of refraction, etc) from your plastic. Unless you are doping quite heavily (to the point that "doping" is hardly the right word), the optical properties of the combined substance should be nearly the same as those of the plastic alone. If I may ask, what is the mix ratio?
