PTC® Shore A Scale Ergo Durometer 408

The Model 408 Type A Durometer is designed to measure ASTM D2240 Type A hardness. This includes materials such as rubber, elastomers, and other rubber-like materials including neoprene, silicone, vinyl, and butyl. Soft plastics, felt, leather, and similar materials generally fall into this same range. PTC® s Model 408 meets or exceeds current ASTM D2240 Specifications. Accurate readings can be obtained in any position.
The instrument has a low glare aluminum dial with bold, easy to read numbers. The durometer comes standard with a Max Hold hand, which retains the peak reading. The case tapers to a base that is 1” x 1” to allow better access to confined areas. A removable top knob (8-32 threads) permits both easy handheld use or attachment to test stands or 1 kg deadweight. These durometers can be used either with a twist stand, hand-held or with the constant load weight model 441.

PTC® Shore B Scale Ergo Durometer 408B

B Scale Durometers Test the Hardness of Moderately Hard Rubber, Elastomers, Paper Products, Fibrous Materials.

PTC® Shore C Scale Ergo Durometer 409C

Model 409C is a durometer that has a smaller base then the 307CL to make it easier to test the hardness of smaller surfaces. ASTM Type C Scale Durometers Measure the Hardness of Medium Hard Rubber, Elastomers, and Thermoplastics.
