I am developing a product that needs a component to expand when in contact with crude oil.

Found the wikipedia article about Hanses solubility parameters and thought it would be a good idea to run the parameters of crude oil against a list of polymers to find maybe the five closest polymers.

Where can I find a database of solvents and polymers online?

It should be noted that I know very little about chemistry, but enough about computer programming to be able to run the test against any database format.

I'm afraid that due to copyright claims the only database available is HSPiP, plus there is the most recent handbook Hansen, C. M. Hansen solubility parameters: a user’s handbook, 2nd ed.; CRC Press: Boca Raton, 2007. The book costs ten times less than a database and contains tables for solvents on pp. 345 -- 485, and for polymers on pp. 487 -- 500.
