Non-radioactive materials research

General information

Non-radioactive materials research in the Dangerous Goods Database is offered as an internet application and as a standalone application. The data in both applications are equally up to date. In contrast to the standalone application the internet application does not require an installation. An internet browser and a JAVA runtime environment is sufficient.

The Non-radioactive materials research is an extensive JAVA application with a user-friendly search interface for dangerous goods.

You can obtain an overview of the application by looking at the demo (see below) - the entire functionality is available but only for a limited number of substances (44 substances from different dangerous goods classes).

The following topics from the dangerous goods regulations are covered in the Dangerous Goods Database:

The short form feature is worth a mention, which summarizes dangerous goods information about a substance and a mode of transport on an A4 page, particularly suited for printing. It also lets you print out physicochemical material data, or save it as a PDF file.
