 The material database contains about 500 predefined compounds with
 about 300 of them together with the Sternheimer parameters, damage
 thresholds and optical properties.
 You can use this database as a REFERENCE only.
 Please VERIFY always the correctness of the information


  Search:            Narrow down the list by filtering with a text
  Group:             Materials group according to their use
  Material List:     List of filtered materials

  Material Properties
  Title              A user defined title for the material
