Abstract: The 45-acre campus known as Materials Park has been home to the headquarters of ASM International (formerly known as the American Society for Metals) for the past 52 years. Join us for the tour of the Materials Dome from your computers!! With an open latticework geodesic dome arching over a semi-circular office building, ASM International World Headquarters at Materials Park symbolizes humanity’s technological mastery of materials. Hailed 50 years ago for its futuristic design, Materials Park is renowned today for its timelessness. In 2009, Materials Park was named to the National Register of Historic Places, and an exciting renovation was completed in July 2011. ASM’s geodesic dome stands as a symbol of humanity’s mastery of materials: from the minerals and laboratories they come from, to the processes that make them useful in ways that touch our lives every day. If it’s manufactured, it involves materials. And if it involves materials, it involves ASM.

The building serves an important educational role. The tour will also feature virtual demonstration of Materials Park’s state-of-the-art materials laboratory featuring various metallography, heat treating, failure analysis and surface engineering equipment.
