the format used for material database is called udb, a Moldflow specific file.

It is possible to have a personal databases.

In Help look in:
Materials and databases
Materials and databases > Material databases
Materials and databases > Material databases > Personal databases

What you can do:
- Contact the material supplier and ask for an udb-file for the material

- If you have measured data, raw data, of material you can contact
and get measured data fitted and an udb-file for analysis in return.
(material supplier might have measured raw data of the material?)

Hope this helps.
