In this webinar you will:

  • Understand how a systematic approach to plastics selection reduces risk and cost and leads to optimal products
  • Learn about the value of the UL Prospector Plastics and Yellow Cards data, particularly for safety-critical applications in sectors such as electronic products and components
  • See case studies showing practical applications: e.g., meeting performance criteria for a particular thickness; finding drop-in replacements; or identifying colorants – all while ensuring safety criteria are met.
  • GRANTA MI users – find out how you can access the new Prospector Plastics and UL Yellow Cards data module
  • Not yet a GRANTA MI or CES Selector user? Find out how you could use these tools for plastic decision-making.

Who should attend?

  • Any individual involved in selection and approval of materials to be used in products – for example, materials engineers, design engineers, research scientists.
  • Any individual concerned with, or responsible for, product safety – particularly in sectors such as electronic products, where plastics are widely used.


Nick Visser is Product Manager for UL Prospector. Nick joined the Prospector team as a software engineer in 1997, back when the internet was young and Prospector came from a small company called IDES. Prospector has always relied on rich materials data and innovative tools to connect users with the right material. Nick brings that knowledge of product innovation and its reliance on technical materials data to the UL Prospector team as a Product Manager for custom solutions, including the content partnership with Granta.

Dr. Sarah Egan has led projects at Granta Design that have developed a series of innovative knowledge resources for medical device materials and, more recently, for human biological materials. Dr Egan’s background in materials engineering for medical applications includes a PhD in Biomaterials from the University of Cambridge and an MEng in Materials Engineering in Medicine from Queen Mary College, University of London. As Medical Devices Product Manager at Granta she currently specializes in the compilation and application of materials data, the development and implementation of software for materials selection, and systems to enable materials information management in the medical device industry.
