Elsevier, a provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, has launched the Knovel Polymer Matrix Composites Database. The new database helps companies replace existing materials or select new composites during the engineering research and design process, helping engineering teams increase efficiency in the early materials selection stage, lower costs of testing and maintenance, and ultimately improve material performance.

The Knovel Polymer Matrix Composites Database is a compilation of composite tensile, shear, flexural, compressive and impact properties data for engineers involved in the component design process. Content within the database has been sourced from multiple providers and has been curated by subject matter experts. Organized into multiple tables, the database includes mechanical, thermophysical and processing properties data, along with relevant application information and safety data. Elsevier says the database is the only commercially available solution featuring design-allowable properties compiled and normalized in a manner ideal for structural, mechanical and materials engineers. 

The database, which is sold as a premium supplement outside of the Knovel platform, draws its content from NCAMP, AGATE and CMH-17. It currently includes more than 1,700 records on more than 100 laminate precursors in cured and uncured states, including matrix resins and fiber reinforcement data.
