PARIS - The Technical Polymers Business Line of Arkema has just launched its new material database. Accessible online on all five of its product websites, the new material database provides technical data on fluoropolymer and specialty polyamide resin grades from Arkema.

The database displays technical data, charts and graphs on over 200 grades of Kynar®, Pebax®, Rilsan®, Orgalloy® and Rilsamid® resins. It allows the customer to compare properties of several grades at once, as well as search the database by resin properties. A customized technical data sheet in a PDF format can also be downloaded for each grade on the database. The database provides the user with the ability to view or download the technical data in five languages (English, German, Chinese, Korean and Japanese) and to switch between U.S. and metric units.

The material database includes single-point data, as well as graphical information (multi-point data). For both categories, extensive tools for navigation and search are available, like generation of tables, comparison of grades, zoom and print functions (e.g. based on PDF formats).

It facilitates quick and easy comparison between the different grades. Materials can be selected according to grade name, and a selection based on numerical values is also possible. The material data sheets generated in PDF format include single-point values, curves and text information.
