Explore Qualitest Range of Advanced Shore Hardness Testers

The Shore durometer is a device for measuring the hardness of a material, typically of plastic, rubber, and soft elastic materials. Higher numbers on the scale indicate a greater resistance to indentation and thus harder materials. On the other hand, lower numbers indicate less resistance and softer materials.

Qualitest has led the industry to provide clients with an extensive range of advanced durometers and hardness testers for 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 (0.5% or better), quality and craftsmanship, durability, and require almost no calibration in many years after the purchase. 

Qualitest durometers are referred to as the “Swiss watches” among other products on the market. Investing in our products comes with a guarantee of accuracy and assurance for many years of operation.

Our brand new digital shore hardness testers come with an array of benefits, unique to Qualitest products:

Key Features

  • The housing is made of aluminum alloy which provides robust structure and light weight
  • Both rubber and plastic are prone to change their properties due to the temperature change. To help you better understand how temperature could influence the hardness of your specimen, our product is equipped with two thermocouples for delivering information of your specimen temperature and the environmental temperature and humidity.
  • Equipped with 2 temperature sensors with 1 for measuring the specimen temperature and the other for the environmental temperature as well as humidity.
  • Minimizing user error by minimizing incorrect measuring angle and ensuring the right force is applied. - One of the most common mistakes to make when a measurement is taking place is the angle of approach. Our product has a large hand grip to assist the user to approach the specimen perpendicularly. The special mechanism inside the hand grip delivers an exact amount of load (Shore A = 1kg / Shore D = 5 kg) required as when the presser foot gets into full contact with the specimen.
  • Navigate all functions through a touch of your thumb. The new HPE III is designed for one-handed operation.
  • Serial interface and PC cable.


  • A large screen with 102 x 64 pixels with selectable information to display
  • On the display, not only you get a view of the hardness value, but additional information such as the environmental temperature / humidity specimen temperature, date/time, no. of measurements are all visible at a glance. Another breakthrough is that all previous measurements are viewable directly on the display and transferable by USB and RS232.
  • Our product is designed to provide great usability. Simply with a touch of your thumb, you can navigate through all functions on the screen while your hand has a firm grip on the lower section of the device. It is a truly one-handed operation durometer.
