The production of composite materials continues to be an expensive process. The WEB-Based Cost Estimation Model enables one to approximate the cost of manufacturing composites, so as to assist the user in making sound economic decisions. An extensive, up-to-date materials database is an essential part of such a cost estimator. This paper presents a list of materials to be added to the existing database and also derives a materials selection chart for six manufacturing processes.
