Sibyl ™  Packaging material database

About Sibyl

The Sibyl packaging materials database makes plastics data accessible, functional and easy to use.

Sibyl is a new database created to give you a well of data that allows you to make real comparison of different grades of PE and PP for packaging applications.

The database contain essential polymer data as well as a wide range of application related tests and properties. You can compare products and make your own graphic presentation.

You can get access to this significant collection of data through a subscription which are now offered at an introduction price for your organisation. With company subscription you can be sure all your development and marketing staff gets easy access to the database and can start to look up product properties and compare immediately.

Welcome to Norner's interactive PO packaging materials database

Extensive data available

Sibyl contain polymer data ranging from MFR and density to rheology, DSC and FTIR curves. Furthermore it contains a wide range of film and moulding specific test data. All products have been processed and analysed at Norner under equal conditions. This ensures the quality, reproducibility and your confidence in the database.

Graphic functionality

  • Sibyl contain advanced graphic functionality which facilitates your comparisons.
  • Curve overlay for rheology, DSC and FTIR or X-Y plot, histograms and spider graphs of technical data.

Easy to use database

Sibyl database is easy to use. You begin with a search for the right product by: Screen 1 = selecting polymer and application Screen 2 = selecting grades and properties This gives a table of selected products and properties. You can look up and compare data or generate graphic overlay of rheology, DSC or FTIR curves. Also XY plot, histogram and spider graphs of product data can be generated. All graphics can be downloaded by a right click on your mouse as picture files for later use.
