The data offered in this system is partly based on information provided by the material suppliers and partly from independent material tests at the participating institutes. It is allowed to use this data as reference values without restriction. However, neither the producers of the materials, nor the participating institutes or M-Base, as provider of the database, take any responsibility or warranty for the correctness of the data. Any decision about the application of materials based on this data must be double checked with the producer of this material.
This is an ongoing project. The data content is not complete and will be extended on a continuous basis.
