material properties lookup charts
« on: August 13, 2007, 07:01:21 AM »
Does anyone know of a good source that lists material properties (yield strength, density, hardness, etc.) of a large range of average materials?

For example, delrin, ABS, tungsten, aluminum, copper, lexan, etc . . .

Its just annoying to have to go through tons of misleading marketing every time I need a material property . . .

Not perfect, but a LOT of information.  Might be better for metals than plastics though (I've only looked up the former).
