“Thank you for bringing back the Histogram Search which is a very useful feature. I find it to be a great way to rule out outlying entries.” – Pierre Dumas, Sr. Technical Representative, Nexeo Solutions Canada Corp.
Originally introduced in the 1990’s in a CD-based version of Prospector, the Histogram Search was reintroduced in 2011 as a web-based application available in Prospector’s Property Search.
How it Works
When you run a Property Search on any numeric property, you will have the choice of either entering your min/max values like always or you can search using the histogram. The Histogram shows a graphical view of the plastics data for a given property. For example, if you do a property search on Flexural Modulus, the Histogram will show you the number of materials that are available at each increment of Flexural Modulus values.
The beauty of this search is that it can aid your selection by making sure that you widen your search parameters to include the largest number of materials possible. In the example shown above, you can see a graphical range of plastics with Flexural Modulus in the Prospector Materials Database.
