The MRC contains thousands of new and innovative materials from all over the world, collections from Material ConneXion New York, StylePark Germany, PolyU Eco-Material Archive (HK and PRD), Pantone color libraries and collections of local materials, manufacturers and suppliers. Material samples are continually added and updated.
Every material sample is linked to a database containing all the related detailed descriptions and information, including contacts of manufacturers and distributors.
