Deutsch: Material
Material is anything which consists of one or more substances which are intentionally used to form another material or final product.

Examples for material are

  • Air,
  • water,
  • sand, cement
  • wood, nails, screws, glue

So dust, pollution which is also added unintentionally to most products is not a material.

The definition can vary by the intended use.

For example: For nail-makers the nails are their products, while for a furniture maker the nails are material.
