Our range of Materials Data are created and curated by our world-class team of materials specialists to be used with our Granta MI, Selector and EduPack tools.
Choose the right Materials Data for your needs
All Granta software includes a set of Core Materials Data and their properties. This can be supplemented with a wide spectrum of Advanced Materials Data for different industries and materials types. Access design, supplier, or test data or standards and specifications – helping to inform critical decisions across design, materials selection and more.
Inform critical decisions with Ansys Granta Materials Data. Leverage a library of materials data with your relevant Granta software.
Searching for a replacement to PA66 to solve a supply issue.
By using our Core and Advanced Materials Data with Ansys Granta Selector, alternative polymers can be found to solve severe supplier shortages.
When global supply issues resulted in PA66 being difficult to source, our customers turned to Ansys Granta to seek a solution.
By accessing Granta’s unique MaterialUniverse TM polymers data, which is part of our Core Generic data offering with each of our products, materials experts were able to access critical PA66 data.
Using Granta Selector they were able to quickly find a range of viable alternative polymers given the price, flexural modulus, flammability constraints and for its suitability for injection molding.
Finally, using our Advanced Polymers Materials Data, the individual grades from suppliers were found. Resulting in an actionable alternative polymer found, at a lower cost.
