IDES Helps Link Industry Websites to Plastic Material Datasheets

LARAMIE, WY--(Marketwire - November 20, 2007) - IDES Inc. (, home of The Plastics Web® and the fastest growing search destination for the plastics industry, announced today that they provide a tool to help plastics companies add links to technical plastic material datasheets from their websites.

"A great example is how Protomold, a rapid injection molding company in Minnesota, links to datasheets in our Prospector plastics search engine and database from their Stocked Resin List," said Mike Kmetz, President of IDES. "This helps to add value to their site by providing their website visitors with descriptive information about the materials they use, including property and processing data."

IDES updates the Prospector resin database of 70,500 plastic material datasheets weekly and adding links to summary datasheets is easy to do, allowing website owners to copy and paste code from the IDES website onto their site. The html code and a short demonstration video is available on the IDES website at:
