Shore Durometers, product range

Código:
53505/A-U

Baxlo durometers can determine the Shore A scale hardnes of a wide range of flexible materials, eg soft vulcanized rubber or any elastomeric material, natural rubber, neoprene, soft PVC resin, wax, felt, leather, etc. They are built according to DIN 53,505, UNE-EN ISO 868 and ASTM D-2240 standards.

Código:
53505/C-U

To determine the Shore hardness, scale C of specimens and articles made of medium hardnessrubber according to ASTM D-2240 standard. It is used in the following types of materials: Medium hardness rubber and plastics, gypsum, plaster, and others.

Código:
53505/D-U

To measure the Shore D scale hardness of specimens and articles of hard rubber and its derivatives, according to DIN 53,505, UNE-EN ISO 868 and ASTM D-2240. Used in the following types of materials: Hard thermoplastic, hard rubber and plastic high hardness, plexiglass, polystyrene, sheet vinyl, cellulose acetate, thermostatic and laminated formica. Graphite, etc.

Shore scale is most often used worldwide to measure the hardness of soft and semi-hard materials such as rubber, elastomers, plastics, etc. Baxlo are specialist in manufacturing all scales of Shore durometers. Our instruments are manufactured in strict compliance with international standards DIN 53505, UNE-EN ISO 868 and ASTM D-2240.

Our hardness testers are compact and handy instruments designed for an easy operation and a quick reading.

Includes a verification gauge to check the adjustment of the instrument.

Supplied in a stylish wooden box with the test gauge and operating instructions

On request we can supply the instrument with maximum reading pointer.

Working Principle of the Shore Durometers

Shore hardness measuring is based on the following principle: A penetrator is continuously pressed into the material to be measured with a determined force. The deformation in the application point is measured obtaining the grade of hardness of the material.

The penetration hardness is inversely proportional to the penetration and is dependent on the elastic modulus and the viscoelastic properties of the material. The shape of the penetrator, the force applied on it and its period of aplication influence the results.

Thus, for different types of material there are different scales with different load conditions and penetrators that will be used depending on the sample tested.
