Standard Material Catalog

Standard Material Catalog - MatSphere

Benefit from handpicked material knowledge

There are dozens of material databases providers out there. So why shouldn’t you work with them?

Most material data providers on the market provide large catalogs with thousands of materials, but their material compositions are mostly theoretical, which means the data is not derived from real-world empirical information. 

Often the material properties in their catalogs are incomplete or not statistically assured, because material suppliers themselves often enter values in these databases without any consistency checks.

You (engineers, materials experts, Simulation specialists...) end up being overwhelmed by the amount of data and don’t have a way to identify the right data for your specific purpose / application.

The defined material properties (the data) are not provided in a format that downstream consumers (and their tools) can use.
