Granta's MaterialUniverse data module is particularly strong in its coverage of plastics, elastomers, and polymer composites. There are approximately 700 records covering these materials types. Each record contains engineering, environmental, and cost data.

This data is compiled from leading reference sources and designed to enable like-for-like comparisons across the whole spectrum of material and processing possibilities. Features that enable this use include:

  • broad coverage through the use of generic records describing materials types
  • all records are complete—missing data are estimated using Granta property models.

More information

Plastics selection
MaterialUniverse data is typically used during initial screening and selection, with final selection drawing on the more detailed information about specific grades available in modules such as CAMPUS and Prospector Plastics (previously known as IDES).
Elastomers
MaterialUniverse provides comprehensive coverage of rubbers and thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs).
Medical polymers
These are covered within the Medical MaterialUniverse data module.
Transparent plastics
These are important for both functional and aesthetic reasons, but their use has some specific problems. MaterialUniverse helps.
