IDES Plastics Database Grows to 83,000 Data Sheets Representing 800 Global Manufacturers

IDES, the leading informational resource for plastic materials, today announced that 310,000 design engineers and plastics processors using the industry-standard Prospector Plastics Database now have access to 83,000 plastic material data sheets from 800 global resin manufacturers. Engineers rely on the database to save time selecting plastics and referencing property and processing information critical to the success of their products and their businesses.

In addition to technical material data sheets, the Prospector plastics database also includes supplier contact information, phone numbers, website addresses, geographic locations, MSDS, UL Yellow Cards, Processing Documents, Design Guides, Chemical Resistance Charts, and more. Premium Search Services for plastics in Prospector include; Property Search, Automotive Plastics Search, Curve Data, CostMate® - an Injection Molding Part Cost Estimator, and the Alternative Resin Search that helps plastics buyers replace current in-use plastic.

All technical data is supplied to IDES directly from resin manufactures and IDES employs a team of engineers that update the database every week. Comprehensive updates to entire manufacturer product lines during the 3rd quarter of 2010 included BASF Corporation, Bayer Material Science, Dingjue Silicone, Formosa Chemicals & Fibre Corporation, Jam Polypropylene Company, LATI S.p.A., Nizhnekamskneftekhim Inc., Plastcom, SABIC Innovative Plastics, and Ticona.
