polished and heat-treated 52100 steel test rod specimen

52100 Steel Test Rods, Coupons & Specimens

Metaspec makes test rod specimens, coupons, panels, and strips from 52100 steel. These specimens are available in a range of different sizes and surface finishes. Customized test panels and specimens are available on request.

  • Test panels can be machined from plate or bar material. A wide range of sizes and thickness are available, including panels as thin as 0.032 inch. This process leaves some visible machining marks on the surface instead of an ‘as rolled’ surface finish.

    An additional polishing process can smooth out the machining marks on the faces of the test panel and is available upon request. Machined test panels are interleaved or packed individually to prevent surface scratches.
