I am new to the site, and have uploaded a test model. I
need a material that should as white as possible, as diffuse as possible and as opaque as possible (without any translucency). What should it be?

Thanks guys

How thick is the model? WSF, White Detail, and White glass could all be this depending on the thickness. All are not transparent, but I know WSF is very porous and will let light through easily. White Detail will probably be your best bet. I have no experience with glass yet.
