A Material Test Report (MTR), also known as a Mill Test Report or Certificate of Test, is a document that provides essential information about the properties and quality of a specific material or product, typically metals such as steel, alloys, or other materials used in construction, manufacturing, or engineering applications.
An MTR is typically provided by the manufacturer or supplier of the material and is essential for ensuring that the material meets the required specifications and standards for the intended application. It serves as a crucial quality assurance and traceability document.
Manganese steel, also known as Hadfield steel or mangalloy, is a type of alloy steel that contains a high amount of manganese, about 11 to 15%, and smaller amounts of carbon, ranging anywhere from 1 to 1.4%.
Manganese steel is renowned for its exceptional toughness, wear resistance, and work hardening abilities, making it suitable for applications involving heavy impact, abrasive wear, and shock.
