Beyond Grade Libraries: Total Materia and ELEMENTAL.SUITE

a winning combination

The classification of metals, developed by numerous standards organizations, is complex, convoluted and internationally not harmonized. Additionally, industrial associations, like SAE International for automotive, have created their own standard alloy numbering system. Simultaneously, the usage of secondary metals for producing new metals becomes increasingly important. Fortunately there is a solution helping you to maintain an overview.

Total Materia is the ultimate solution for metals properties, cross-referencing, and knowledge, by integrating information from 74 Standard Development Organizations, and hundreds of producers and other sources into the most comprehensive database in the world, powered with a superfast search engine. Its combination with a spark-OES metals analyzer forms an ideal tool not only for scrap sorting, positive material identification or grade determination or answering the basic question: “is my material within the specification”, but also for more advanced challenges.

We demonstrate the benefit of having Total Materia integrated within ELEMENTAL.SUITE. See the combination is work for basic tasks, before experts will unleash the power of Total Materia for advanced tasks like:

  • Finding equivalents to foreign materials and comparing alternatives side by side
  • Searching for materials worldwide by specific chemical composition or mechanical properties
  • Deciphering material specifications and finding the correct grade for a specific application
