- Select and optimize the materials used in components and packaging to minimize cost and maximize performance
- Apply tools that help you tune your materials strategy to environmental regulations such as Europe's EuP, WEEE, and REACH regulations
- Capture, manage, and use corporate materials information to improve quality, increase efficiency in design and testing, and enhance innovation
If you could optimize materials decisions for engineering, environmental, and economic factors, could you make better components and packaging at lower cost? Would you benefit by avoiding restricted substances during design?
Granta can help.

CES Selector for materials decisions support
The choice of material for an engineering application—or its substitution for another material with better engineering, economic, or environmental properties —is fundamental in most manufacturing industies. In high technology enterprises, these choices can control costs and performance for components and packaging. Granta helps you to make such choices in a systematic, repeatable, auditable manner.
GRANTA MI for materials strategy
For many enterprises, optimizing individual materials choices is not enough. Your organization probably uses hundreds of different materials supporting hundreds of different applications. It is probably split across different businesses or sites. Regulation and global manufacturing pose further challenges. Granta can help you to consolidate and control all relevant materials data and information, and to use it to make better, more consistent materials decisions enterprise-wide. Results are lower costs, reduced risk, and fewer eco or manufacturing problems.
Eco design and eco regulations
Optimizing products for lower environmental impact is becoming a key competitive issue in consumer products industries. And every engineering organization must now design with environmental regulations such as REACH in mind. Materials are central to these issues, because regulation constrains what materials can be used, and because materials properties determine much of the environmental impact of products. Granta develops and applies software and data solutions to aid design around environmental constraints.
Granta data products provide engineering, eco, and price data for plastics, metals, composites, and ceramics.
GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway delivers the materials data you need directly within CAD, CAE, or PLM software.
