Digital Durometers arrow Shimana Digital Shore A, D, OO Durometer

Digital Shore A, D, OO Durometer

Part#: SHPMDR176/187/212 Series
Supplier: Shimana
Calibration Certificate: available on request

 The Shimana Digital Durometers available in Shore A (SHPMDR176), Shore D (SHPMDR187) and Shore OO (SHPMDR212) scales will test a wide variety of applications and materials such as: rubber, polyester, pvc, leather, vinyl, polystyrene glass, foam, etc.


These Digital Hardness Testers are ergonomically designed to give exact hardness readings with no errors for accurate and repeatable hardness measurement of rubber, plastics and other elastomers.

It is highly recommended that, whenever possible, an operating stand be employed in performing durometer hardness tests.



  • Conforms to ASTM D-2240-05, GB/T-531.1-2008/ISO7619-1:2004 standards
  • Large, easy-to-read LCD display with backlight
  • Adjustable dwell time
  • Test counter displays the number of test performed
  • Digital display gives exact reading with no guessing or errors.
  • Statistics, including Averaging mode, Max Mode, Maximum average mode, Peak difference
  • Out—of—tolerance indicators, both audible and visual
  • Delivered with a long life rechargeable battery cell for almost 24 hour of work
  • Automatic power off to conserve power.



test-stand-for-digital-durometer.jpg These durometers can be used with the Shimana hardness test stand (sold separately or as a kit with durometer) to eliminate the speed and weight variables in hardness measurement. The Shimana Test Stand for Durometers was designed to provide the ASTM recommended forces for use in hardness measurements.

The test stand offers a constant load weight. The mass is centered along the indenter axis, providing a consistent load each and every test.

Using test stand in your hardness applications, the hardness value is not depending on operator force: the lever is used only to release the weight to produce the ASTM recommended force.

The Shimana hardness test stand is the ideal tool for repetitive or lab-type testing for users who must test either very large specimens, or test in a number of different durometer scales.
