By the June 2016 launch of the game, there is little to distinguish crafting components from building materials. Please be patient as updates are made to the wiki.
Post launch suggested reading until updates are complete:

This category includes in-game items tagged with "Crafting Component" or simply "Crafting" - likely because of no text-wrapping in the tooltip box.
