For measuring the hardness, place the durometer vertical and shock-free on the material to be measured and press the housing down, until the measuring face rests on the sample.
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.
