If a product was to be made for use in space, there may be certain materials or certain combinations of materials that might work well on Earth, but be particularly unsuitable for spaceflight applications.
One example that comes to mind are the protein cubes or bars described in the Andy Weir Novel The Martian and to a lesser extent in the film adaptation of the same name, where the simultaneous combination of high G-force and vibration caused the material to dramatically change it's mechanical properties. The phenomenon is described further in Quora and a KSP forum.
So materials that turn to goop during launch (and I mean the protein in cube form, not human form) are automatically out as a class.
But are there others that turn out to be handy on Earth but unsuitable (and especially those that might be unexpectedly so) in spaceflight, so that they would fail either during a cargo delivery or while in microgravity in a commonly used space environment for astronauts?
