At a webinar hosted by Granta, Dr Mark Yeoman, of UK-based technology development consultancy Continuum Blue, spoke about minimizing risk when selecting or changing materials. He presented a case study showing how his company had used CES Selector (now GRANTA Selector) to help a client to find a suitable plastic for a container for a new organic solvent range. He explained how it took just a few hours to identify candidate materials, reducing consultancy time from months to weeks, and thus considerably cutting the cost to the client.
The case study demonstrated that the chosen material matched the client’s established production process and also resulted in cost savings. As Dr Yeoman explained:“In under two hours you can find an alternative solution that helps with material costs and reduces the carbon footprint.”
