Available Scales: A, B, CF, D, DO, M, O, OO, OOO, OOO-S, RR (Asker, ISO, DIN & JIS Scales also available, inquire)
The Checkline RX-1600 Durometer is the standard model for good reason. The gauge features a full-sized dial face for readability to within 1/2 point. The RX-1600 offers the maximum accuracy available in a dial model gauge at a minimum cost.
Type M Durometers require test stand RX-OS-3 per ASTM D2240.
All RX-1600 models are supplied with a NIST traceable calibration certificate.
|A||Flat cone point, 35º Included Angle
Soft rubber, plastics, and elastomers, printer's rolls.
|B||Sharp cone point, 30º Included Angle
Harder elastomers and plastics. Paper and fibrous materials, Use above 93 Duro A.
|C||Flat cone point, 35º Included Angle
Medium hard elastomers and plastics. Also useful to avoid surface marks.
|D||Sharp cone point, 30º Included Angle
Hard rubber and plastics such as thermo plastics, flooring and bowling balls.
Dense granular material, textile windings.
Very soft elastomers, textile windings, soft granular materials. Use below 20 Duro A.
Light foams, sponge rubber gels, animal tissue.
Ultra soft gels and sponge rubber.
|M||Sharp cone point, 30º Included Angle
Materials as thin as .050"
|Measuring Range||0 - 100 units|
|Accuracy*||±1 durometer unit (A,B,C,D,E,O,DO)|
±2 durometer units (OO,OOO)<BR>±4 durometer units (M)
