Based on the Analog Shore Durometer, the Digital
Hardness Tester (Durometer) is used for the
determination of the indentation hardness of
rubber, plastic, leather, wood and other similar
The force is applied by a specially designed spring
contained in a load cell screwed on to the body of
the tester. The load cell can thus be easily replaced
in case of wear & tear after a long use.
To eliminate errors resulting from various contact
pressures applied by the operators, these testers
have further been provided with very special
springs contained in the outer body giving a
specified contact pressure remains constant as per
international specifications irrespective of the
operator's hand pressure-resulting in very accurate
These instruments are highly portable. The digital
display gives readings upto 0.5 Shore unit and
misreading of the scale are avoided.
"SET","ZERO" and "HOLD" facility
Large clear digital display
Battery operated - 1.5 v, SR 44
Digimatic output from 0 to 100 units.
Manufactured in accordance with International Standards
These hardness testers have been designed to comply
with DIN 53 505 and ASTM-D- 2240 and enable the
hardness according to Shore to be rapidly determined.
The tests must be performed by mechanically
unstressed specimens. The standard specimens
should have a dia of 30 mm and a minimum thickness of
6 mm. Thinner materials can be placed layer upon layer
until this minimum thickness is achieved. The surface to
be tested must be flat and smooth.
