What is MTT?


What is the precise composition of your material?

Are there any hidden structural flaws which could affect the performance of your material in your required application?

What are the mechanical properties of your material under conditions such as temperature, compression or impact?


We can answer all these questions, and many more.

We are Metals Technology Testing Ltd, MTT. Established in 1983 in Sheffield, UK.

Our job is to provide assurances, with supporting data, to companies like yours.

We specialise in metallurgical testing, mechanical testing, chemical analysis and failure investigations using a host of techniques.

We document all results and supporting data in one easy-to-read certified test report, so you can determine the integrity, safety and reliability of your material - just what you need to be confident in the quality of your products and keep your business running smoothly.

If your metal products fail to perform as expected, we can investigate the cause and record all findings in a comprehensive failure investigation report with colour photomicrographs, so you will know what to do next. We give you valuable information to act quickly, and avoid costly delays.

We collect, prepare, test, analyse, report and return or dispose of your test material for a hassle-free testing experience and a simple end-to-end service.

If you are UK based, collection is arranged by us free of charge. Prices for international collections vary by courier and we can advise you on your choice of courier to ensure the best rates and tracking options.

Preparation processes such as the sawing, milling and turning of your test specimen are also a fully inclusive part of the service.

We offer Priority and Same Day Service (SDS) if you need the answers fast.

Our experienced metallurgists and technicians analyse your material in accordance with your required specification and proposed application.

We offer free and impartial advice to our customers. A formal consultation is available on request.*

We are accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) with a comprehensive quality management system subject to regular internal audit and annual external audit.
