These analog Shore hardness testing instruments comply with DIN 53505, ASTM D 2240, ISO 868, NFT 51109. For on-site testing on the product, versions with and without pointer are available. The instruments with pointers make testing easier, particularly in difficult-to-access locations, as the measured value is indicated by the pointer after the test.
Examples of tests:
soft rubber, elastomers and natural rubber to Shore A
harder elastomers, plastics and rigid thermoplastics to Shore D
soft elastomers and textile fabrics to Shore 0
expanded, sponge rubber and foam rubber to Shore 00
harder elastomers than Shore A tested to Shore B
medium hard elastomers to Shore C.
A test device with load weight and a control unit are optionally available.
