Abstract : This publication establishes the criteria for selection of materials used in space vehicles, associated GSE and test facilities. It establishes the flammability, odor, and offgassing limitations for testing candidate materials. Chapter 2 provides material selection criteria and evaluation requirements for the various material usage categories. It also relates the various test techniques to the applicable material usage categories. Detailed procedures to be utilized for screening candidate materials are provided in Chapter 4. The major elements of a Materials Control Program are presented in Chapter 3. It is intended that the cognizant NASA center program office and Material specialists shall select the appropriate elements of this publication and establish a materials control program tailored to the needs of the specific programs.
