What is a MILL Test?
A MILL test is a procedure used to assess the quality and traceability of metal products (like steel) throughout the manufacturing process. The test evaluates a variety of data including the product ID, chemical analysis at the elemental level, and mechanical properties. A MILL test aims to ensure that the alloy meets the necessary specifications and standards for its intended use. The test results are reported in the form of a MILL test report (MTR), or material test report, which summarizes the findings of the test and provides information on the material’s quality and characteristics.
