Add or Update Your Company's Material Data in MatWeb - It's Free
Hundreds of companies have partnered with MatWeb to allow our users to have a comprehensive data resource. We don't charge manufacturers/suppliers/compounders to add their technical data because of the mutually beneficial nature of the relationship: we want MatWeb to be current and comprehensive as possible and partner companies benefit by getting added exposure for their products. Many companies find that their data sheets are seen more often via MatWeb than via their own web sites, illustrating the importance of ongoing data collaboration.
What format does MatWeb require?
We do not have 'requirements' but we do have preferences: Manufacturer partners that submit data via electronic spreadsheet or database (Excel, Access, etc.) retain greater control over the information AND make our job easier. If you don't already
have data in such a format, ask us for a template to serve as a guide for the materials properties and data
format that MatWeb uses. If you don’t have your material data in electronic format, paper or manufacturer web sites are
fine too, especially for small product lines.
How do I get a template?
What if I note missing, outdated, or inaccurate data in MatWeb?
Note that a decreasing minority of companies decline to participate. We often hear of their preference to rely on a traditional sales force to disseminate data sheets, or simply no mechanism exists in the company to authorize publiation to outside sources such as MatWeb. We can legally add this data to MatWeb anyway, but we want to be a good partner and abide by these concerns. If a notable raw materials producer is absent, this is the likely reason but we'd like to hear your suggestions anyway.
