METADEX - Alloy Classification Codes

 
 
The CSA Internet Database Service field code to use when searching for alloys either by name or code is MC, eg: MC="cubro" or MC=bronzes

The field that contains either specific manufacturers' designations or trade names of alloys or alloy compositions discussed in the source document, (e.g.. INCONEL 718, 90Cu-10Zn) is the ML field. All entries made in this field are assigned materials classifications.
