Durometer and IRHD Hardness Tester for Rubber, Plastics and Soft Elastic Materials
Qualitest provides quality control departments and research laboratories with an extensive range of top quality Durometer and IRHD hardness Tester for accurate hardness determination on all natural and synthetic rubber products and soft elastic materials, plastics, acrylic glass, acetates, casting resin, polyester, thermoplastics, PVC, neoprenes, hardboards, wood, leather, fruits and much more. Our products provide the highest precision (normally 0.5% or better), quality and craftsmanship, durability, “yet require” almost no calibration in many years after the purchase. Our designs are engineered so that the Durometer stays precisely within the standard requirements. Qualitest Durometers are referred to as the “Swiss watches” among other products on the market. Investing in our line of Durometer is a guarantee of accuracy and assurance for many years of operation.

Our HP Durometer range is equipped with a variety of selectable dial gauges with options for a maximum indicating pointer (models ending with "S"). This feature makes the maximum value easier to read and allows for the determination of the flow characteristics of the material after a certain test time. Our comprehensive analog durometer line covers the widest range of hardness for different materials. Our Durometer HP-A and HP-D are used for hardness tests conforming to standards DIN 53505, ASTM D 2240, and ISO 868. Our HP-B, HP-C, HP-DO, HP-O. HP-OO Durometer serve for hardness tests conforming to standards ASTM D 2240. An optional BS-61 test stand can provide the tabletop configuration.
Digital HPE-II Durometer
The HPE-II range of digital Durometer comes with digital readout with a decimal point and provides 0.5% or better accuracy which is the highest repeatability and accuracy on the market. Similar to the HP analog line, the HPE-II series digital Durometer covers a full range of applications for all durometer scales. The HPE-II range comes with an RS-232 interface and a cable for data transfer and an optional data logger, software and radio transmission device
HPE Type M/AM Digital Micro Shore Durometer
Ideal for Thin Walled O-Rings and irregular/thin flat material according to ASTM D2240 (type M) and ISO 7619 (type AM). The HPE Type M Digital Micro Shore Durometer is ideal for accurate, repeatable hardness readings on soft elastomers too thin or too irregular in shape for standard Durometers. The HPE Type M Durometer accurately measures specimens down to 1.50 mm. The unique design minimizes material deformation
IRHD Micro Compact Hardness Tester
The latest generation of this popular IRHD Micro Hardness Tester line has a more convenient and user-friendly operation. Accurate IRHD Micro hardness measurement of soft elastomers such as O-rings, seals and gaskets, with thickness down to 0.6mm, is guaranteed.
IRHD Micro Compact III offers new advantages, with an excellent price/quality ratio. Testing of O-rings, molder samples with irregular shapes, seals, etc. are ideal applications for this model. A quick center lever allows quick and precise positioning of the samples and the measuring head comes with integrated display and keypad for ease of use. IRHD Micro Compact III comes with standard RS-232 data interface as well as exchangeable indenters.
Digi-TEST II Modular Automatic Hardness Testing System for all Durometer and IRHD ranges
Digi-TEST is recognized as the most modular, flexible, accurate and state-of-the-artdurometer/IRHD hardness tester on the market. Digi-TEST is the best of polymer materials hardness testing because it combines measurement and data acquisition in one system. Digi-TEST can be upgraded at any time with any of durometer or IRHD scale test heads and totally eliminates operator influences on test results. This intelligent system is the ideal durometer solution for any research labs, product development and university laboratory.
Temperature Controlled Automatic Motorized Durometer - Digi-Chamber
The revolutionary Temperature Controlled Automatic Motorized Durometer - Digi-Chamber consists of a Digi-Test II Hardness Tester and a temperature chamber which allows tests to be carried out at above or below ambient temperature. With the function of temperature control, the specimen can be examined of its hardness change in extreme temperature conditions. This kind of test is ideal for the automobile and tire industries as most of the rubber parts are required to sustain critical temperature changes. The entire system can be controlled by a touch panel with colored display providing easy-to-use controls.
Automatic O-Ring Hardness Tester
As a dedicated variation of our popular DigiTest system, O-Ring Automat is the ideal solution for mid to high volume hardness testing of O-rings. With every batch, up to 100 O-rings can be tested in-line automatically and precisely, while the results can be sent to our data analysis software, Hardtest. At the end of the measurement the analyzed O-Rings are selected as GOOD or BAD.
Pusey & Jones Hardness Tester
Our top quality Pusey & Jones (P&J) hardness tester (Plastometer) serves for determination of the penetration depth on rubber and elastomer materials e.g. rubber rollers and standard blocks made of rubber with a minimum thickness of 13 mm as well as paper rollers.
Barcol Hardness Tester
Analog and Digital models, for accurate hardness measurement on fiber-glass glass-reinforced plastics, duro plastics, hard thermo plastics, aluminum, semifinished and finished products, according to Barcol method, these models are highly popular portable hardness Tester. Available models include GYZJ series Analog BarcolImpressor Hardness Tester as well as HPE-II series Digital Barcol Hardness Tester
