Hoto Super EX Series Asker Durometer - EX-C
Asker Super EX durometers feature portablility, ease of operation, non-destructive measurement and optional peak indicators. They are heavy-duty with high repeatability.
Manufacturer part number:
As the durometer is pressed against the sample, the material resistance force and indentor spring load balance. The depth of the indentor is measured, which provides a measure of the material's hardness. Values are based upon a 100 point scale (accuracy 1 point). However, as time elapses the indicator will "creep" back so that a reading taken a few seconds after the indentor makes contact with the sample will be less than the peak reading. Asker durometers offer a peak indicator as an option to more closely monitor the difference between peak and "creep".
