Various types of materials such as films, fluids, oils and solids
- Aggregates & resists - aggregates constitute the component of a composite material that provides bulk and resists compression, and resists are a thin polymer layer on the surface of an object
- Amorphous materials - solids that lack the consistent order characteristics of a crystal, glass being the most common material
- Biological & biomedical materials - materials evolving from biological structures
- Composite materials - often called simply composites, materials composed of two or more constituent materials with significantly different characteristics which maintain their distinctiveness when combined
- Crystalline materials - solid materials whose constituent atoms are arranged in an orderly and repeating pattern in three dimensions
- Films - thin chemical coverings applied to a material's surface
- Fluids - substances that continually deform under applied pressure, composing both liquids and gases
- Mesoporous materials - materials with pores of an intermediate size
- Metamaterials - artificial materials engineered to have properties that may not be found in nature, often used in producing optic materials
- Oils - a substance that is liquid at normal temperatures but does not mix with water
- Optical materials - materials that effect the transmission of light
- Organic inorganic hybrid materials - materials in which biological and non-biological materials are combined at a nanometer level
- Phase change materials - or PCM, a substance with a high heat of fusion, capable of storing and releasing large amounts of energy
- Photoconducting materials - materials that become more electrically conductive due to the absorption of electromagnetic radiation
- Polymers - a large molecule composed of repeating structural units
- Radioactive materials - materials whose atoms lose energy by emitting ionizing particles
- Raw materials - materials that have not been processed or re-figured by human activity
- Resins - the hydrocarbon secretion of some plants, usually conifers, which can produce varnishes, adhesives and other products
- Solids - one of the three states of matter in which materials are characterized by structural rigidity and resistance to change
- Waste materials - excess materials that are extruded as part of a production process
