  • Easily and accurately measure the hardness of rubbers and plastics
These hand held durometers are designed to measure hardness with the highest level of accuracy. Units are easy to set up and use, and the lightweight, ergonomic design make them ideal for taking precise and consistent measurements in the lab or out in the field.
Model PHT-960 (Shore A durometer) is designed to measure the hardness of soft rubber materials such as vulcanized (tyre) and natural nitrile, as well as elastomeric (rubber like) materials such as neoprene, thiokol, polyacrylic esters, and flexible polyacrilic esters. Unit is also designed to measure the hardness of wax, felt, leather, and more.
Model PHT-980 (Shore D durometer) is designed to measure the hardness of hard rubber materials such as rigid thermoplastics, plexiglass, thermoploystrene, vinyl, sheet, cellulode acetate, and thermosetting laminates (i.e. - formica). Unit can also be used to measure the hardness of materials that would not normally indent under fingernail pressure, such as a pocket comb or bowling ball.

    • Q:

      Will the probe make a indentation in the rubber? Do you have a flat tip probe?
      Asked on 6/21/2012 by Tim from Providence, RI

      1 answer



        It does make a slight indentation in rubber. The indentation it makes also depends on the hardness of the rubber and its elasticity. There are no flat tips available since the angle of the tip is mandated for this type of test.

    • Q:

      Can this meter measure Rockwell hardness?

        No, this unit will not expressed measured values in Rockwell units. Shore A values are generally softer than the range Rockwell tests are in. The Rockwell value is more closely related to Shore D testers (like part number 54103-09). However, there may not be an accurate correlation between a Shore D and Rockwell value. Please call or email us for further assistance.
