Durometer observes specimen creep characteristics.

December 8, 2014

Along with max-hand and active hand, Max-Hand 3000 features magnetic-drag maximum reset mechanism. Unit holds reading until reset, which is accomplished manually via rotation of knob on front of gauge. In addition to high-contrast, low-glare dial, features include 18 mm dia presser foot and large diameter grip. This 2.25 x 6.125 in., 11 oz instrument, which conforms to ASTM D 2240, DIN 53505, ISO 868, and ISO, features jeweled movement, reads maximum and creep.

Digital Durometer tests micro hardness of soft elastomers.

September 18, 2009

Designed to test elastomer specimens with cross sectional thickness up to 0.275 in., HPE Type M/AM Digital Micro Shore Durometer fully conforms to ASTM D 2240-00 (Type M) and ISO 7619 (Type AM). It can store up to 300 readings and can be connected to PC for statistical analysis and report generation. Requiring minimal application pressure to attain full scale readings, durometer allows for testing production pieces rather than test slabs. Read More
