Product Description

Shore ceased all production operations in 2012 and their products are no longer available. CCSi continues to support Shore equipment in regard to service, calibration and ISO/IEC 17025 certification.


The Shore® S1 Micro Hardness Model 719 Digital Durometer revolutionizes durometer hardness testing by utilizing state-of-the-art technology. A highly accurate force and displacement measuring system assures consistent results with accuracy and repeatability. The Shore® S1 modular design provides for the ability to change test probes for multi-scale testing.

The Model 719 is a complete, ready to use, digital testing system. It is supplied with the S1 display head, S1 type M probe, base adapter, rubber test block kit, 6 inserts to accommodate various o-ring diameters, oil, and a dust cover.

The Shore® S1 Micro Hardness Digital Durometer is designed for accurate, repeatable hardness determinations on elastomeric specimens that are too thin or irregularly shaped to be tested with a typical durometer.

It is capable of accurately measuring specimens as thin as 1.25 mm. The specially designed indentor and hydraulically controlled test stand minimize material deformation, improving both repeatability and reproducibility.

The Shore® S1 Micro Hardness Model 902-719 Digital Durometer features the Model 902-S1 Automatic Operating Stand. The Model 902-S1 offers fully automated operation, providing consistent load, controlled rate of descent and a downward motion dwell time adjustable from 1 to 25 s using the timer integral to the S1 Micro Hardness Durometer.

The Models 719 and 902-719 conform to the recently revised editions of ASTM D2240 and ISO 7619 which now include the Type M (Micro Hardness) durometer. Please read a summary of the this, and other, significant developments in DuroMatters: Basic Durometer Testing.
