Dual sourcing: Finding drop-in replacements for polymer grades

Join us on Thursday, April 21 to find out how you can use the data and tools in CES Selector to find drop-in replacements for polymer grades, identifying alternatives with the required composition, performance, and processing characteristics.

Register for this no-cost webinar to:

  • Find out how to get ready access to CAMPUS Plastics, M-Base Plastics, Prospector Plastics and MaterialUniverse datasets
  • Learn how to quickly find drop-in replacements, even when little or no information is available on the design requirements
  • Discover how to highlight and understand any differences in performance
  • Find out how to investigate whether there are alternative polymer grades for your products.

Further information

See how CES Selector gives experts the information they need to make the right decisionsWhen developing products, it is always prudent to identify multiple sources for your materials. This helps to protect you from supply disruptions and puts you in a better position to negotiate on price with your supplier. In addition, if you subcontract your parts out to other manufacturers or have manufacturing facility in other global regions to support the local market, you may receive material change requests due to the specified material being unavailable at the manufacturing location. Typically, this type of request comes in at short notice and requires immediate attention to avoid disruption to production.

This webinar will show how you can use the data and tools in CES Selector to find drop-in replacements for existing materials - one that has the same composition and exhibits similar performance and processing characteristics.

Who should join the web seminar?

This session will be of particular interest to:

  • Materials specialists
  • Project engineers, product engineers, development engineers and designers.
