TQC Sheen Positector Shore Hardness Durometer Probe

The PosiTector Shore Hardness Durometer SHD probe was developed for shore hardness testing of medium to extra hard materials such as rubber, epoxies, plastics, PVC or acrylic.

Developed by TQC Sheen, our paint testing specialist brand, this PosiTector durometer was developed for shore hardness testing of medium to extra hard materials, grouped into the Shore D category of the Shore hardness scale.  

The Shore hardness test is an industry accepted method that uses indentations and durometers to assess the hardness of a given material.  

The PosiTector Shore Hardness Durometer SHD probe was built for testing ‘Shore D’ samples made from hard rubber, epoxies, hard plastics, PVC or acrylic. But what is the shore hardness scale? 

What is the Shore hardness scale?  

The Shore hardness scale is a well-established method of determining the hardness or flexibility of a variety of materials. The concept and scale itself were invented in the 1920s by Albert Ferdinand Shore. His ambition was to create a common point of reference when talking about the relative hardness of materials.    

There’s a selection of Shore hardness scales, including Shore A, Shore D, Shore H and Shore O, to suit different material types. Shore A and Shore D are most commonly used in the rubber and plastics industry.  

Highly accurate Shore hardness testing 

The PosiTector shore hardness durometer has a measurement range of 0 – 100. It has an accuracy of + 1 and a resolution of 0.1. 

Safe and assured shore hardness testing 

The PosiTector duometer has a sharp indenter that’s made from hardened steel. The device comes with a test block and a protective rubber cap for the probe. It also comes with a certificate of calibration traceable to NIST.  

Quality shore hardness testing – as standard

The PosiTector Shore Hardness Durometer Probe was designed to support testing to meet a number of international standards, including:  

Hard to beat hardness testing machines

Across the Industrial Physics portfolio we have a wide range of materials testing machines that inspect everything from shore hardness to flexibility and tensile testing. 

If you need a sure-fire way to measure the hardness of soft materials, then the TQC Sheen Shore Hardness Gauge will give you the results you need. 

Through TQC Sheen we also make products like the PosiTest DFT Ferrous coating thickness gauge or this range of TQC Bird-type film applicators, 

Shore hardness testing knowledgebase  

We’ve been making hardness testing devices for all types of materials and applications for many decades. Over this time we’ve learnt a thing or two about best practice. We like to share this insight with our customers.  

In the knowledgebase section of our website you’ll find blogs related to the product on offer on this page. For example, our blog The Shore Hardness Scale Explained is a good introduction to shore hardness testing. On the topic of hardness testing, you may find this blog of interest – Your complete guide to Rockwell Hardness Testing.

The Problem

When your customers must be able to rely on your inks and coatings there’s no margin for error in your test and inspection processes. So, settling for second-rate equipment and advice is a risky business! 

The Solution

With several dedicated inks and coatings testing brands in the Industrial Physics family, our industry-leading product portfolio and expertise is even relied upon by leading paint testing laboratories.   

The Result

Artur Palasz, R&D Director at Spektrochem, said:

Many of our customers appreciate Industrial Physics equipment, because it is a world-class apparatus that they know and use in their laboratories. Excellent technical contact, perfect customer service and fast order processing time are undoubtedly additional advantages that determine the choice of Industrial Physics as our permanent supplier of laboratory equipment today and in the future.”
