MatCalc basic databases mc_fe, mc_ni and mc_al for thermodynamic calculations and kinetic simulations in steel, Ni-base superalloys and Al-base alloys, respectively, can be downloaded and used free of charge under the open database license regulations. The same applies for the physical database;   and

Licenses for our constantly enhanced “MatCalc Engineering databases” (thermodynamic and mobility data) for advanced simulations can be purchased.
