Shore Durometer is one of the modern non-destructive testing instruments for measuring the hardness value of different materials at the workshops and laboratories. This device can be used at the radio instruments industry, mechanical engineering and other areas of modern industry.
Shore Durometer NOVOTEST TS-A corresponds to the following standards: ISO-7619 and ISO-868, DIN53505, ASTM D2240 and JIS K7215.
Soft plastic, printed circuit boards, glass, elastomers, fibers, soft rubber, leather, resin, wax, neoprin, butyl, silicone, vinyl are typical testing objects of Shore Durometer. The principle of determining the hardness value of materials is based on the calculation the value of material’s resistance to the penetration of the indenter with a preset load.
