A virtual Polymer Library by Rapra Technology (Shrewsbury, Shropshire, UK) recently changed its interface to enable easy searching and displaying of results. The revamped site also allows account details to be more closely monitored. The new system displays purchase history for up to 14 months.

The library contains more than 820,000 records on the rubber, plastics, and adhesives industries. According to the site, about 35,000 records are added each year. Using only already published material, the Web site lists information from journals, reports, and data sheets. Topics include properties and testing, raw materials, and market statistics. Available in a number of languages, the site’s contents come from around the world including North America, Europe, and Asia.

New users can sign up for free trial access. As a subscriber, a number of options are available. The price of viewing abstracts varies with the plan, and unlimited viewings for an unlimited number of members is also an option.
