IDES Plastics Search Engine Surpasses 75,000 Technical Material Datasheets

LARAMIE, Wyo. – July 16, 2008 – IDES Inc. (, home of The Plastics Web® and the fastest growing search destination for the plastics industry, now has processing and property information for over 75,000 plastic materials from 650 global manufacturers. More than 205,000 plastics professionals rely on Prospector (a search engine for plastic material datasheets developed by IDES) to find, compare and select polymers.

"By giving our users quick access to the most comprehensive source for plastic materials, Prospector reduces the amount of time it takes to select polymers and reference plastics processing information," said Mike Kmetz, President and Founder of IDES. "The expansion of our content offering to include more global materials addresses a shared need among our customers for a source they can trust for plastics data."

IDES publishes new technical content from resin manufacturers weekly. The company receives content in printed and electronic formats, and some resin manufacturers use a web-based data management system to enter and import property and processing information that defines each of their unique grades.
