SAE Metallic Materials Testing Laboratories, is a technical Subcommittee in SAE’s Aerospace Materials Systems Group with the responsibility to develop and maintain material specifications and other SAE technical reports for Aerospace Metallic Materials Testing Requirements. The Subcommittee works in conjunction with related bodies such as the Performance Review Institute (PRI), and regulatory authorities such as FAA and EASA.
The objectives of MTL are to:
• Develop Aerospace Specifications (AS) for the control of materials testing specific to aerospace applications.
• Provide a forum for the exchange of technical information related to aerospace materials testing.
• Further the adaptation of industry sponsored material specifications through coordination with PRI and associated organizations.
• Establish a system to ensure aerospace specifications are controlled.
