The material Sample Library is one of the main features of the Sourcebook material sourcing platform. The Sample Library is a physical materials library located at Boyd Technologies which houses material samples (US letter or A4 size) of all of the materials available in the Sourcebook database. The samples include composites, extruded nets, films, foams, foils, membranes, nonwovens, technical paper, and technical textiles.
The Sample Library facilitates one of the key values of Sourcebook, which is to dramatically improve the time it takes to identify and receive sample materials. With Sourcebook sample requests always ship overnight so they can be in your hands tomorrow.
