Here are three tips and tricks users can follow when searching technical details and application examples for more than 600 unique material grades in one easy and mobile-friendly website.
1. Filters are your friends: Type any search term into the search bar on the PlasticsFinder.com homepage to start your search. Once you reach the search results page, you can limit your search to products, applications or both. The search can be further narrowed by polymer family, sustainability, processing technology, characteristics, automotive OEM specifications, and more.
2. Download details: Browse to the download section of a product page to access product data sheets, injection molding recommendations, quality documents and other overview materials. Industry-specific overview materials and videos are available on the application pages.
3. Compare and contrast: To access a side-by-side comparison of general information, rheological properties, mechanical properties, thermal properties and other technical details, return to the search results page and choose “products’’ in the filter results toolbox.
Select the products to compare using the checkbox for each relevant product search result on the page. To load the side-by-side comparison, click the “compare selection” button at the top of the page. This appears as a ribbon with the number of selected products on mobile devices.
