Plastics Selection Made Easy for Designer Engineers

New Visual Search for Plastics by IDES

LARAMIE, WY--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) - Finding just the right resin always involves trade-offs. Changing one requirement can greatly affect another. The goal of the Visual Search, available in the Prospector Plastics Database from IDES, is to help designer engineers visualize these trade-offs in real time during plastics selection. Using slider bars, they are able to set the limits of their requirements and immediately see the effect on the other properties from a database of more than 85,000 grades.

The Visual Search also includes a Resin Price Index model to assist users that need to find the lowest cost resin that satisfies the performance requirements of their application. Here is more information on Visual Plastics Search.
