Easily and accurately measure the hardness of rubbers and plastics
These hand held durometers are designed to measure hardness with the highest level of accuracy. Units are easy to set up and use, and the lightweight, ergonomic design make them ideal for taking precise and consistent measurements in the lab or out in the field.
Model PHT-960 (Shore A durometer) is designed to measure the hardness of soft rubber materials such as vulcanized (tyre) and natural nitrile, as well as elastomeric (rubber like) materials such as neoprene, thiokol, polyacrylic esters, and flexible polyacrilic esters. Unit is also designed to measure the hardness of wax, felt, leather, and more.
Model PHT-980 (Shore D durometer) is designed to measure the hardness of hard rubber materials such as rigid thermoplastics, plexiglass, thermoploystrene, vinyl, sheet, cellulode acetate, and thermosetting laminates (i.e. - formica). Unit can also be used to measure the hardness of materials that would not normally indent under fingernail pressure, such as a pocket comb or bowling ball.
