The Plastics Web™ From IDES Surpasses 60,000 Material Data Sheets

LARAMIE, WY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 1, 2005 -- IDES Inc. (, the fastest growing search destination for the plastics industry, has announced its recent expansion in content offering to customers by publishing over 60,000 plastic material data sheets from 500 global resin suppliers. This initiative serves to further enhance The Plastics Web™ -- a vertical search engine from IDES that indexes plastics related websites, returning relevant search results for plastics professionals.

"By giving our users immediate access to the most comprehensive source for plastic materials, IDES has created an improved and more purposeful site," said Josh Dorrell, Director of Business Development for IDES. "The expansion of our content offering to include these materials addresses a shared need among our customers for a source they can trust for all of their plastics information."

IDES publishes fresh content received directly from resin manufacturers every two weeks. A growing number of manufacturers in Asia and Europe have submitted their product information to be available to users through IDES, contributing to a recent growth in material data sheets. The company receives content in printed and electronic formats, and a handful of resin manufacturers use a web-based data management system to enter and import property information that defines each of their unique grades.
