Plastics News has added a significant new feature to its Web site — a searchable directory of plastics industry-relevant Web sites.
All visitors to www.plasticsnews.com can access the directory for free by clicking on the Web Watch link in the navigational bar. It includes some 850 industry Web sites already, and more will be added each week.
The search engine allows users to select from more than 60 descriptions of companies or organizations (e.g. associations, bottle blow molders, extrusion machine suppliers, compounders, consultants, etc.).
When searching for a certain type of processor, users can filter further by choosing the type of end market served (e.g. ``injection molders'' and ``medical''). The search-results pages provide links directly to the sites that match your search parameters.
Inclusion in the directory also is free — but to have your site considered, you must fully complete and submit the electronic Web Watch submission form. That is the only way to get your site listed in the directory. Hot links to that submission form are on all the Web Watch pages.
Please note that your site does not appear in the directory immediately after you submit the form. Plastics News editors review the submissions for accuracy and relevance before posting them in the directory. Please be patient.
