Materials are substance from which a thing is or can be made. They can be classified as metal, polymer, ceramic, composites and others (glass, wood, semiconductors…). According to their applications, materials can also be classified as biomaterials, magnetic materials, electronic materials, optical materials, nanomaterials, etc. From the second half of 20th century onward, great strides have been made in the advancement of material science and techniques for processing materials. As a result, there are new materials come out frequently and are available for any imaginable applications. For example, new plastics are finding an ever increasing use in all branches of industry. More recently the development of nuclear energy has stimulated the need for entirely new metals and alloys exhibiting properties that could not be achieved by ordinary metals. Furthermore, extensive research works have been carried out on new biodegradable composite materials synthesized by new natural fibers and polymers that exhibit high structural, thermo–mechanical and tribological performances, which could replace the existing classical materials, setting up current, innovative and high performance solutions for applications in automotive industry.

Since there is a wide range of materials and process techniques available, it is crucial to selecting the best possible material while minimizing the costs of manufacturing but also meet the product design requirements. Meeting such a challenge requires a thorough understanding of the structure-property relationships of materials and the associated manufacturing technology. The functional requirements of a product are directly determined by the mechanical, physical, chemical properties of raw materials. Additionally, for a product to be technically manufacturable, the raw materials must have the right manufacturing properties. Materials properties can be summarized under the following categories:

• Mechanical Properties: hardness, stiffness, strength, ductility, toughness, etc.
• Physical Properties: density, color, mass, boiling point, melting point, electrical/thermal conductivity, etc.
• Chemical Properties: flammability, reactivity, corrosion resistance, pH, heat capability.
• Manufacturing Properties: formability, solubility, machinability, ease of joining, etc.

For example, the intrinsic chemical structures of electrode materials are crucial in understanding battery chemistry and improving battery performance for large-scale applications. A forged component requires a material with sufficient flowability without cracking during forging. As a materials science research company, Matexcel provides a variety of high-quality materials and research tools that advance your lab research or product development. We also offer custom manufacturing services, and our staff is always ready to discuss the details of specific needs and to develop strategies tailored to your requirements.
