Outgassing database
TML, RML and CVCM values for approx. 5000 materials. Search possibilities via wild card searches on product name, manufacturer and chemical nature.

Flammability database
Flammability data of approx. 1100 materials. Search possibilities via product name using lists

Stress Corrosion database
Metals listed per stress corrosion susceptibility. Table I: high resistance, table II: medium resistance and table III:  low resistance to stress corrosion cracking.

European Space Materials DataBase pilot.
The European Space Materials Database is an initiative from EADS, CNES and ESA.  The content and the structure is controlled by the members of the board which consists of EADS, CNES, DLR and ESA.

At present the public version of the ESMDB has been withdrawn whilst representatives of the Space Agencies and Industry decide what data will be included and how the database will be funded. The working group should be reporting later this year.
