Metals data

The Metals Data Series brings together an unrivalled collection of materials data from widely-used and respected sources, with metals property data covering thousands of standards, specifications, and grades. It includes digital versions of the authoritative MMPDS, ESDU and ASME handbooks, a vast collection of standards and specifications data, information on metals for additive manufacturing, and generic data on all classes of materials, as well as creep and fatigue data and information on sheet steels from specialist research programs.

  • Save time with fast access to the materials information that you need.
  • Access digital versions of regulator-approved handbook data for the aerospace and energy industries.
  • Find internationally equivalent grades and specifications.
  • Get decisions ‘right first time’ early in design.
