The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) and SpecialChem announced a partnership that will offer SPE members full access to SpecialChem’s Universal Selector database of plastics and additives.

Access to the Universal Selector, which includes 125,000 datasheets, will be available starting today.

The partnership will greatly benefit SPE members according to Wim DeVos, CEO of SPE. "This new Materials Database resource we are offering with SpecialChem is an exciting match for SPE, enriching the value we offer our members," said Mr. DeVos. "Whether they are looking for materials with specific properties or searching for alternatives or even technical solutions, our engineers and purchasers will find this tool a very valuable asset."

“This strategic partnership with SPE is completely aligned with our corporate mission to help engineers faster select the products they need by giving them access to all products in the world and the knowledge to select them,” said Christophe Cabarry, founder and CEO at SpecialChem. “Our Universal Selector proposes 10 dimensions of search including the ‘new’ property search. We constantly strive to standardize the heterogeneous ways suppliers publish product data and to add new products as soon as they are launched, which has proven to be valuable for both formulators and engineers.”

SPE and SpecialChem will cross-promote the partnership at conferences and through digital and social media. For detailed information on this program for SPE members and special offers for new members, please visit www.4spe.org.
