PlasticsFinder.com now includes Tailormade PDS

You can now get a tailormade PDS (data sheet) per material grade based on available properties on PlasticsFinder.com. Find out specific mechanical, rheological, electrical, and thermal properties of a specific grade. Plus, you can also specify rheological calculation properties and diagrams of grades.

Because each materials solution has its own particular properties to suit different uses, the success of the materials solution in a specific application will depend upon the correct choice of the grade used—the tailor made PDS is designed around the preferences of the user.

Gears Selection tool: Input torque, gear pitch diameter, number of teeth, gear width and root stress. Additional information can be included about the expected failure modes, such as tooth root breakage or tooth wear. When utilizing this additional information, the tool will recommended a material.
