MatWeb the materials database resource

MatWeb is not a new website but we are receiving more requests for places to find materials databases for use in your various CAD packages.  With the increasing uptake of simulation software there is a growing demand for easy access to established material properties.

MatWeb has datasheets for over 100,000 metals, plastics, ceramics, and composites that are categorised according to name, properties, and also trade name.  The site offers premium services, one of the benefits being that you can export those directly into your software package.

Whilst it is not universally complete it is one of the best resources that exist on the web to date, and if they don't have what you are looking for then its best to get in touch with the material producers directly.
