PTC® Ergonomically Designed Durometers: Description
PTC® 400 Series 'Ergo' Durometer PTC® Instruments
The PTC® Ergo Style Durometers are manufactured to meet or exceed current ASTM D2240 specifications and designed to measure the indentation hardness of rubber, elastomers, and other rubber like substances such as neoprene, silicone, vinyl, nitrile, and butyl. They can also be used for soft plastics, felt, leather, and similar materials.
These durometers can be used either with a test stand or as hand—held testers. All models can be used with PTC® Test Stands or with the Constant Load Weight for hand—held tests. Please refer to the ‘PTC® Durometer Stand’ sections for appropriate applications.
The PTC® Ergo Style Durometers come complete with carrying case and test block. The Ergo Style Durometers feature a removable mounting knob for more comfortable hand—held use and come standard with an ancillary hand (maximum reading hand) for indicating peak readings.
