Material standardization (the replacement of numerous components/ materials with a single component that provides all of the capabilities of the materials/components it replaces) is an essential purchasing department decision. For historical reasons, developing a standard has always included reaching a consensus among national and international groups. Voting determines whether or not the proposed standards will be accepted, and this is not geared for the consumer. Hence, including design principles into the process of creating material standards is beneficial. While looking at various material standards, it is not immediately clear how the customers' requirements have been met. This article will seek out the requirements of the consumer in terms of material standards and then look at the ways those needs have been addressed in four distinct norms. It would not zero in on any one material, but rather try to identify needs shared by designers across disciplines and media. As a result, there is no one standard that meets all of the criteria, and all of the standards only meet some of them.
