Shore Durometers/Hardness Tester

To determine the indentation hardness of different materials like elastomers, rubber, thermoplastic etc.

Shore Hardness Tester 

According DIN 53505, ISO 7619, ISO 868 or ASTM D 2240

Durometer HPSA-M Durometer HPSA-M with memory pointer


The principle used to measure shore hardness is based on measruing the resistance force of the penetration of a pin into the test material under a known spring load. The amount of penetration is converted to hardness reading on a scale with 100 shore units.
As the depth of indentation is max. 2.5 mm the testmaterial has to have a minimum thickness of 6 mm. If thickness is less stack some samples till you reach the required thickness. The point of measurement should be more than 13 mm inner from the edge of the sample.
