Shore D durometer DIN53505 / ASTMD2240 0 - 100HD Shore D Durometer Tester Shore D Durometer Hardness Tester
Designed to determine the indentation hardness of materials ranging from cellular products to rigid plastics. Each Durometer type is made to a specific scale (i.e. A, C,D) and is capable of producing a value between 0 and 100. Shore A is designed to measure the penetration hardness of rubber, elastomers and other rubber like substances such as neoprene, silicone, and vinyl. It can also be used for soft plastics,felt, leather and similar materials. Shore C is designed for various foam and sponge.
Shore D is designed for Plastics, Formica,Epoxies and Plexiglass.
* It meets standards: DIN 53505, ISO 868,ISO 7619, ASTM D 2240, JIS K7215.
* Used the exclusive Micro-computer LSI circuit and crystal time base to offer high accuracy measurement.
* Digital display gives exact reading with no guessing or errors.
* Can communicate with PC for recording, printing and analysing by the optional software and cable for RS232C interface.
* Automatic power off to conserve power.
* Use operation stand of optional parts can get good accuracy and repetitiveness due

Zero Calibration plate
To check whether the tester is accurate, just Insert the indenter into the hole of the calibrated test Block. Apply enough force to make firm contact between the top surface of the test block and the presser foot. The reading
should agree with the value stamped on the test block. If not, just carry out Zero calibration and High end calibration.
Hold the durometer vertically with the point of the indenter hanging in the air, the reading on the display should be '0'. If not, depress the 'ZERO' key to make the tester display '0' .
High end calibration
Just place the indenter onto a flat glass, apply enough force to make firm contact between the glass and the presser foot. The readings on the display should lie between 99.5 and 101. If not, press CAL key to carry out high end calibration.
When the battery symbol appears on the display, it is time to replace the batteries.
Slide the Battery Cover away from the tester and remove the batteries.
Install batteries paying careful attention to polarity.
Readings below 10HD for Shore D type may be inexact and should not be reported for some materials. Measurements should be made on a Shore A type.
Readings above 90HA for Shore A should be made on a Shore D type durometer
