Products, Materials and Processes (Pre-release Edition)

Key Features

This unique database connects products to the materials and processes that made them:


This database is almost ready to be an edition of CES EduPack. It is available since January 22, free for anyone that uses CES EduPack 2016, on the Teaching Resources Website. We hope in this way to get ideas for refinement, and to ask the community what other product examples they would like to see included.

If you use it, you can provide feedback via our database development page.

If you need further guidance on how to download this database, please send us an email to or directly to your Granta contact.
