    MatWeb - Division of Automation Creation, Inc.
    MatWeb Metal Material Data Sheets contains over 12,000 material data sheets (MDS) for ferrous and nonferrous groups, electronic/magnetic alloy, intermetallic, metal matrix composite and metal foam, mesh or honeycomb. Ferrous includes all varieties of steel and iron. Nonferrous include aluminums, coppers, nickel, zinc, precious metals and other non-iron based alloys. Each group of materials has interactive tables with basic properties in US customary and metric units and MDS in an easy to read format. Most groups have overviews summarizing the properties, processing methods and applications. Most properties in tables and MDS are field searchable, including newly created Processing Method and Appearance fields. MDS can be opened from TOC and from interactive tables. Numeric search, unit conversion and Booleans are available.
