MET® for Windows Version 8.0 (in short "MET") is a system of programs comprising the MET®-Module, the Substance-Incompatibility-Module Incomp, the Navigator-Module und the map module ISiMap. The program is available in several variations:

  • All modules:"MET for Windows" with MET, ISiMap, Incomp, and Navigator;
  • ISiMap-Module only as "ISiMap";
  • Incomp-Module  only as "Incomp"

For prices and the flyer of MET for Windows see the links at the bottom of this page.


The MET-Module contains the actual MET®-dispersion model. With the help of this module the toxically dangerous distances for persons in the open air, inside a building, or in a tunnel can be estimated. In addition, the module calculates the dangers posed through the explosion of gaseous clouds, explosions of tanks with flying debris and balls of fire. The MET-Module also contains the recently added model MEHAS [more]


The Incomp-Module points to chemical incompatibilities between different substances If an incompatibility is ignored, a critical and dangerous situation may arise. Incompatible means "cannot exist next to each other". Incomp provides support to an experienced professional to not forget, overlook or be unaware of important known facts.  [more]


ISiMap is the internal geographic map module of MET. It can be used to view OpenStreetMap-based maps as well as bitmap maps. It allows for the display of danger zones on the geographic map. Objects can be imported, which are being displayed as symbols on the map, such as borders, fire hydrants, dangers, etc. Objects can have documents connected to them, such as blueprints, instructions etc. With a click on an object a script can be performed (Windows Scripting Host), which opens a different application. The ISiMap map module can also be run via an external program. MET-Szenarios can be stored on the map. [more]


The Navigator-Module is the connector between the single modules. The Navigator-Mask contains on the left a list of the established MET-Szenarios and on the right, when a substance is clicked on, the dangers which are posed by the substance. From Version 4.1 MET contains the possibility to store user-created documents about a particular substance, to call up test samples, and to access further information via the Internet. [more]

MET contains a comprehensive substances data collection with a great number of synonyms. The search is carried out via the name of the substance, but also via UN-Nr, CAS-Nr:

Over 86'000 substance safety data sheets (according to regulation (EG) Nr. 1904/2006) are available offline.

During a substance search the file with these 86000 data sheets is automatically accessed, too.The data sheets are available in preview.

The data sheets are stored in PDF files and can be accessed also without Internet connection.

The substance safety data sheets contain, among others, the following sections:

  • possible dangers
  • first aid measure
  • measures in case of fire
  • measures in case of substance escape
  • limitation and control of exposure/personal protective gear
  • stability and reactivity
  • toxicological blueprint
  • environmental information

The search also allows the use of a joker. the joker can be used either at the beginning or at the end of the search term.


MET is based on Microsoft's command bar that organizes a program's features into a series of tabs at the top of a window (also termed ribbon). It was originally introduced in Microsoft Office 2007 as an intuitive way to handle the user interface. The ribbon improves clarity and ease of operation.

MET can be operated USB-Flash

Besides the usual installation on a PC MET can be installed on a USB-Flash and initiated from there. 



Operation also with Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10 (32- or 64-Bit) systems

There are laptops and PCs with more than 4GB RAM. These models usually come with 64bit versions of Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10. With MET you are set in this case, too.
