PORTABLE HARDNESS TESTER WITH HIGHEST ACCURACY STANDARDS
The AFFRI Shore tester is a compact device suitable for measuring the hardness of plastic, rubber, polymers, elastomers and synthetic materials. The Shore hardness tester is in compliance with ASTM D2240, ISO 7619 and ISO 868 standards. It is extremely easy to use: just push the probe on the surface of the sample, wait some seconds (dwell time) and read the hardness value!
• 100% made in Italy
• Slim measuring nose to ensure exact positioning also on small components.
• Suitable for tires, rolls, for soft flexible rubber, plastic, PVC, polyester, neoprene, leather, thiokol, nitrile rubbers, etc.
• R&R high performance
• Robust and resistant in every test condition
• Tungsten carbide indenter to guarantee maximum efficiency over the time.
• The tester can be installed on the bench support for laboratory purpose.
CLAMPING SUPPORT BASE
Clamping system to apply a constant, vertical and centered
pressure on any sample, even on curved surfaces, assuring
accurate results similar to those obtained through the test
with bench support. (This accessory is optional)
BENCH-TOP STAND SUPPORT
Bench stand support for extremely precise hardness testing.
The force is applied perpendicularly to the sample surface with high stability whitin
any dwell time. The constant pressure from the top assures a very accurate
measurement. Very easy mounting of the probe on the stand support, just screwunscrew.
Supplementary weight for Shore C-D-DO are available.
O-RING TEST - ASTM 1414
Set of clamping holders to be connected to the bench support for very
precise hardness testing on O-Rings in compliance with ASTM 1414.
Sections Ø 1 - 1.79 - 2.62 - 3.53 - 5.33 - 6.99 mm, other on request.
All AFFRI’s accessories are customizable according to customers
specifications, depending on dimensions and geometry of the samples.
