Thermoplastics specialist Solvay Specialty Polymers (Brussels, Belgium) announced at JEC that 13 of its advanced polymer grades have been included in the latest release of the Digimat platform, an materials database and simulation tool from e-Xstream engineering, an MSC Software Co. (Newport Beach, CA, US). The additional polymer grades from Solvay now allow Digimat to offer expanded capabilities for computer design and simulation of fiber-reinforced composite parts that target automotive, electronics, food-contact and other applications. The 13 new additions to the simulation platform’s Digimat-MX database draw from Solvay’s Amodel polyphthalamide (PPA), Ixef polyarylamide (PARA), Veradel polyethersulfone (PESU) and Ryton polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) product families and deliver a selection of mechanical properties across a range of temperatures. Digimat is a material and structure modeling platform that allows engineers to perform micro- and macro-scale analyses of a range of composite materials to calculate their mechanical, thermal and electrical properties and predict how they will perform in downstream applications.
