  • 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:

    Can this device be independently calibrated by third party calibration services? Also - does it have a low battery indicator, and does a battery replacement trigger a need to calibrate?
    Asked on 1/25/2017 by Rich Bivans from Boston Scientific, San Jose, CA.

    1 answer



      This product is not ASTM certifiable. It will not meet ASTM specifications. This does not have a low battery indicator. It can be calibrated in accordance with NIST standards under 17080-18. To check accuracy, manually place the indentor of the gage on a calibration block.

  • Q:

    Can the digital durometers do 10 or 15 second delay readings, or do the instantaneous results appear on the guage and stay as the only reading choice?
    Asked on 9/10/2012 by Christin from United States

    1 answer



      This Phase II PHT-980 Durometer takes and displays readings virtually simultaneously, and only has the ability to display one reading at a time.
