Shore Durometer PHPSB

Durometer according to Shore for determining the indentation hardness of harder material than Shore A
Shore B hardness tester according ASTM D 2240

Durometer for measurement with limited access space

Special Features

  • Hardness tester with long thin shaft for measurement with limited access space
  • Constant pressure indicating system assures uniform test pressure elimination false reading due to differences between operators
  • Measuring face 18 mm
  • Adjustable Min./Max. indicator marks to highlight working range of the durometer
  • Optionally available: Calibration certificate with calibration report

Standard Features

  • Easy to use
  • High repeatability
  • Application range 10 - 90 Shore B units
  • Certificate of Compliance with the order 2.1 according EN 10204 is included


For measuring the hardness, the spring-loaded outer ring of the housing is pressed downwards until the edge of the ring meets the colored marking on the housing. This ensures a constant pressure and prevents measuring errors.
The principle used to measure shore hardness is based on measuring 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 til you reach the required thickness.
