Multi Scale Durometer Test Kits

Calibrated to the ASTM D2240 standard for durometer hardness testers

Multi Scale Durometer Test Kit

For the technician that must perform hardness tests on various types of non-metallic materials.

The Multi-Scale base kit consists of a Rex A scale durometer (with standard, silver barrel for soft rubber, plastics and elastomers, printer's rolls), and color-coded barrel adapters for B, C, D, DO, O, OO and OOO scales (see the included chart for applications).

Changing scales is accomplished by unscrewing one barrel and replacing it with another - no supplementary calibration or adjustments are necessary. A test block, calibrated to the selected scale, is also included. The block allows the user to perform quick functional checks on the instrument. The indicator and barrels are made in the U.S.A., and are calibrated to the ASTM D2240 standard for durometer hardness testers.
