Shore® Durometer Cases
Replacement Shore® Durometer Cases These new durometer cases feature a stamped steel clam shell design, tightly covered with an attractive leather—look, durable vinyl to prevent rust and reduce the adverse effects of harsh environmental factors.
The chrome finished latch and aluminum shell trim ensure secure closure. The high density foam inner—liner is custom formed to secure most Shore® durometer styles, as well as the accompanying test blocks. S1 Replacement Shore® Durometer Case
Securing your durometer in a high quality case when it is not in use will reduce inadvertent damage and loss of components ... an investment in quality test determinations, the instrument, and reduced maintenance intervals!
Shore® Rubber Test Block Kits
Shore® Rubber Test Block Kit The Shore® Rubber Test Block Kit is designed to be used as a ready reference for determining the day—to—day operational status of durometers.
The kit consists of 7 elastomeric color coded discs, compounded to yield Type A, M or IRHD nominal durometer hardness values of 30; 40; 50; 60; 70; 80; and 85. They are fitted into an attractive and durable vinyl covered steel case.
The test block set should be calibrated annually as the hardness values change over time. The test blocks may also be purchased individually (please indicate nominal value when ordering) as replacements to a set, or as a single point reference.
Shore® Metal Test Blocks
The Shore® Metal Test Block, now discontinued, was designed to be used as a ‘quick check’ for ascertaining the operational status of individual durometers having a mainspring of 822 gf or greater. Shore® Metal Test Block
The metal test block, which was originally supplied with older Shore® durometers, was unique to each durometer that it accompanied. When the durometer was calibrated, the metal test block was adjusted to that durometer (the parent), so that when applied, the parent durometer would read 50 durometer units. It was not valid for use with any other durometer.
ASTM D2240 recommends that the metal test block be replaced with an elastomeric test block when the durometer is returned for calibration.
Shore® Operating Stand Oil
Shore® Operating Stand Oil Shore® Operating Stand Oil is designed specifically for used in the Shore® Model CV, 714 and 717 hydraulically dampened operating stands.
The convenient 4 ounce bottle comes with a detachable fill tube (not shown). When the operating stand is returned for service, the fill tube is used to evacuate the cylinder prior to shipping, then used to refill the cylinder just prior to return to service. It is important to purge the air from the cylinder prior to use.
All hydraulic type operating stands require routine calibration and maintenance. This is often overlooked in laboratory instrument calibration programs. They are critical to the accurate and precise determination of hardness values, controlling the rate of descent, applied force, and angle of contact.
ASTM D2240 now specifies the rate of descent and the perpendicularity of the specimen support table to the durometer support shaft. It is imperative that all operating stands are periodically serviced and calibrated to conform to these stringent requirements.

Shore® Replacement Indentors
The indentor is a critical component of the durometer, wear or damage will result in inaccurate test determinations. It is highly recommended that the indentor be replaced at each calibration interval, or when it suspected that damage has occurred.
Replacement of the indentor should only be performed by qualified calibration technicians, variance in indentor extension as little as 0.001 inch will cause dramatic differences in the determinations achieved.
