Nowadays, the material disassembly is an important issue for the industry. This paper presents an algorithm to sequence the task to be performed in the disassembly of a specific material from a product or to separate all the materials of a product. It uses a hierarchical model of the product that was used previously in the computation of the sequence to disassemble a component, although it tries to separate the materials, keeping the damage to the components as minimum as possible. The algorithm is tested with the disassembly of toys.
