Mill test reports, also known as mill test certificates (MTC) or certificates of test, certify that the metals purchased comply with material classifications and specifications set by international standards organizations, such as ASTM or ASME. These reports typically indicate the dimensions, chemical and physical properties, and the country of manufacture for the specific metal.
Mill test reports provide confidence that you’re working with metals that meet the specifications you require. For some projects, mill test reports are a standard aspect of the quality assurance program. They can also provide traceability in the event there are any concerns related to problems with the materials.
Industrial Metal Service also offers a wide range of verified metal remnants at unbeatable prices. This option can supply you with the metals and quantities you need at a much lower cost than new metals. Although remnant metals do not have MTRs, we do verify these usable remnants using Thermo Fisher Scientific Niton XL3t analyzers. This non-invasive testing tool provides material identification of metals and their alloys in seconds.
