Elsevier recently introduced its Chemical Resistance Database: Plastics and Elastomers. It characterizes the effect of thousands of reagents, the environment, and other exposure media. This database enables organizations to search for materials and substances properties data that includes information about both commercially available and “retired” plastics. The data is carefully curated from various sources, including commercial catalogs, journal articles, technical reports, and materials information datasheets.

Whatever you are searching for, it is important to have a comprehensive search feature and quality indexing against a standards-based taxonomy. It isn’t a cookie cutter process. Choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
