PosiTector SHD Shore Hardness Durometers measures the indentation hardness of non-metallic materials such as polymers, elastomers and rubbers. In the corrosion industry, durometers are commonly used to ensure proper curing of thick coatings and pipeline repair wraps.
The two PosiTector SHD models look and operate identically, and vary only in the spring pressure and shape of the intender tip. This allows the two models to accurately measure different hardness ranges:
- Shore A (SHDA)- for soft to hard materials such as soft rubber, elastomers, neoprene, silicone, etc.
- Shore D (SHDD) - for medium to extra hard materials such as hard rubber, epoxies, hard plastics, PVC, acrylic, etc.
