Hardness Measurement

Click on models below for complete durometer specifications.

Asker hand held durometers measure hardness from sponge to hard rubber and plastics, covering the range of Shore D, Shore A, Asker C and Asker F hardness scales.

They are easy-to-use, portable and very accurate with a high degree of repeatability. Measurements are non-destructive. Asker durometers offer optional peak indicators to more closely monitor the difference between the peak reading and the tendency of the measurement to "creep" back as time elapses.

Durometer test stands offer greater accuracy by ensuring constant speed, weight and angle, which tend to vary in hand held hardness testing.
