MatWeb's Material Data Sheets

We provide over 180,000 data sheets, with many search tools to locate just the right material, for FREE!


MatWeb's Basic Searches

MatWeb gives you many different ways to find exactly what you're looking for, including:


MatWeb's Advanced Search - our most popular MatWeb searches on one page! Search by:

MatWeb's Advanced Search provides THE single most powerful search MatWeb has to offer. By allowing the addition and exclusion of various search criteria (key words and phrases, material categories, material properties, and material compositions) to a search, it is much easier to locate materials that meet the desired specifications.

The search interface and results appear on the same page, so you can immediately see the results of your search and you don't have to hit the "Back" button to delete or add new search criteria. In the example below, a search on the property "Knoop Hardness" greater than 900 and the eliminating the keyword "diamond" produces three materials:


Side-by-Side Comparison and Data Export - You can use this Premium MatWeb feature just by registering, but as a premium user you can compare up to ten materials side-by-side instead of just three. This feature is extremely useful for putting all of the relevant information in one convenient display. You also have several options to customize your view, including displaying SI or Imperial Units, and displaying/hiding property comments and data sheet notes.

You can also export data in various file formats. Registered users can view the comparisons on the web, while Premium users can export data files in CSV format, directly to Excel via an IQY file, or directly to various CAD programs such as SolidWorks or ANSYS. CSV Format is readable by popular spreadsheets, such as Microsoft Excel and Lotus. The Excel IQY file is compatible with most PCs, and creates a file that you can save to your hard drive. We are continually working on adding new modeling software formats, and welcome any suggestions you may have.


Weight and Moment of Inertia Calculators with Complex Shapes - MatWeb's Weight Calculator has common engineering cross-sections including box-beams, I-beams, T-beams, angles, and U-channels. Moments of Inertia can also be calculated for each shape available in the Weight Calculator.

Enhanced Weight and Inertia Calculator

Searchable Glossary - Contains over 700 searchable engineering terms. Either select a term from the drop-down list, or begin typing a word or phrase in the interactive search box. The autocomplete feature will scroll the drop-down list to the appropriate location. Click the "Go" button and the definition pops up instantly, including hyperlinks to other related glossary terms. Hyperlinked terms used in the definition make it easy to gain full understanding of a term and all related terms quickly.

Matweb Glossary

Hardness Converter - Converting from one hardness scale to another can be a hassle. Not every scale is directly comparable with every other, the ranges do not completely overlap, and the conversion varies depending of the type of material. So we've made it easy for you - just plug in the number and pick the material, we do the rest.

Hardness Calculator

Registration is quick, easy, and gives you the opportunity to try before you buy. If you like what you see, you can get access to the full-blown features for just $99.95 a year! The time savings from more efficient search/compare functions or modeling software exports can pay for the membership many times over during the course of the year. Plus, no other materials related website gives you as much information as MatWeb.
