The EX-C High Performance Shore Durometer / Hardness Tester, Type Asker C, for soft rubber & sponge is an essential characteristic of various rubber, elastomers and plastic products. The first step in using a durometer hardness tester is to select the optimum type based upon the material hardness.
Country of Manufacture: US
Warranty: One Year
EX Series durometers feature portability, ease of operation, non-destructive measurement and optional peak indicators.
These durometers are heavy-duty with high repeatability for plastic and rubber hardness testing.
As the durometer is pressed against the sample, the material resistance force and indentor spring load balance. The depth of the indentor is measured, which provides a measure of the material's hardness. Values are based upon a 100 point scale (accuracy 1 point). However, as time elapses the indicator will "creep" back so that a reading taken a few seconds after the indentor makes contact with the sample will be less than the peak reading.
