What is a Mill Test Report?

Mill Test Report (MTR) – also referred to as a Certified Mill Test Report, Certified Material Test Report, Metallurgical Test Report, Mill Test Certificate (MTC), Inspection Certificate or Certificate of Test – certifies a material’s chemical and physical properties and states a product made of metal is in compliance with an international standards organization’s specific standards.

MTRs provide traceability and assurance to the end user about the quality of the material and the process used to produce it.

The Mill Test Report typically includes:

  • ASTM and/or ASME standards compliance
  • Specific size, shape, and/or diameter specifications
  • Chemical and physical properties specifications
  • Country of melt and manufacture

Certificate of Conformance:

Some metals don't come with MTR's. Copper C110, for example. In that case, Metal Service Centers create their own "Certificate of Conformance" documents to stand behind the product, and confirm it is what they say it is. Online Metals also provides our own Certificate of Conformance as well. If you have any questions just give us a call at (800) 704-2157

Do I need MTRS or Certs?

If you're asking this question, then you probably don't. They are generally only required for manufacturing applications, particularly in the aerospace field.

How will I get the MTR's?

In order to minimize our costs and keep things as efficient as possible, we email you PDFs of all of your MTRs with your shipment notification.
