ASM International, formerly known as the American Society for Metals, is a professional organization for materials scientists and engineers working with metals.

ASM provides several information resources, including standards and the ASM Handbooks, a series of reference books that provide data on various types of metals. These handbooks are recognized as a standard reference in the field of materials science. Examples of topics covered by the ASM handbooks are mechanical properties of metals, corrosion studies, and much more. Other publications include the "Handbook of Binary Alloy Phase Diagrams" (ISBN 0-87170-403-X) and the "Handbook of Ternary Alloy Phase Diagrams" (ISBN 0-87170-525-7), both comprehensive indexes of where alloy phase diagrams can be found in the literature. ASM also hosts numerous .

ASM also operates several "Materials Camps" in the summers for high school students and teachers. These camps are intended to educate the public about the materials field.

ASM has been in existence since 1913. In 1947, its 21,000 members made it the third largest scientific/technological society in the world.
