Digi Test II: The Future of Shore & VLRH Digital Hardness Testing

Digi Test II: The Future of Shore & VLRH Digital Hardness Testing

Understanding the hardness of different materials is key to guaranteeing their suitability and performance in specific applications. Shore, IRHD (International Rubber Hardness Degrees), and VLRH (Very Low Rubber Hardness) testing systems are highly advanced methods used to determine materials’ hardness levels, particularly elastomers and polymers. Shore hardness measures resistance to indentation, with different scales (e.g., Shore A, Shore D) for different material types. IRHD, on the other hand, provides a numerical hardness value for rubber materials, describing their elasticity and durability. VLRH is designed for measuring the softest materials, like silicone rubbers, giving more nuanced insights where traditional methods might not suffice.

The significance of accurate hardness testing cannot be overlooked. Hardness testing systems like Shore, IRHD, and VLRH are mainly used in the rubber and plastics industries. By determining a material’s hardness, manufacturers can predict its behavior under force or stress. This is vital for components such as rubber O-rings and seals, which must exhibit specific hardness levels to function effectively in machinery and equipment.

Recognizing the indispensable nature of precise hardness testing, we are proud to offer the Digi Test II, a cutting-edge hardness tester that epitomizes the future of digital hardness measurement for Shore and VLRH standards. Designed with accuracy, versatility, and user-friendliness in mind, the system stands out as a must-have tool for any material testing laboratory. Its innovative features and comprehensive testing capabilities make it an invaluable asset for industry professionals. Here is how the Digi Test II can revolutionize your material testing process and why it deserves your attention.
