The Asker C Type durometer is commonly used in checking the hardness of rubber material found in gym shoe soles. The Asker F Type durometer is primarily used to check the hardness of polystyrene foam. Analog and Digital Models available.
|Model FUrethane Foam Sponge Non-woven Fabric Model FPPowder Puff ||Exclusive type for foam materials, allowing measurement by placing the tester on the object of measurement. In addition to Model F, Model FP is available for powder puff.|
|Model C & Model C2Soft Rubber Urethane Rubber Sponge Wound threads (yarn package) Rolled Films Potter's Clay (Kaolin) ||Model C is intended for hardness measurement of Soft Rubber, sponge, foamed elastomers, wound threads(yarn package), rolled films, potter's clay(kaolin) and other such soft materials.|
For even softer materials, Model C2 is available.
|Model CSPolystyrene Foam ||This features larger indentor and a more strong spring compared to Model C, thereby making it more suitable for polystyrene foam.|
|Model ARubber in general Softer plastics ||Has been used for wide applications since being standardized in the ISO.|
| Rubber in general Softer plastics ||A hardness tester which conforms with the Japanese Industrial Standards JIS K 6301. One of the most popular types in Japan, but has recently been gradually replaced with the ISO-specified Type A.|
|Model JALRubber in surfaces) ||Especially useful for recessed and/or smaller measurement areas. In addition to the standard Model JAL, long presser foot type are available for another Model applications.|
|Model BSemi-rigid Rubber|
Unglazed pottery clay
|It uses the same spring load used in Model A. It adopts a conical indentor similar to that of Model D, so as to be applicable to harder measuring objects than can be measured by Model A. It is useful for hardness measurement of unglazed pottery clay and ceramics in green condition.|
|Model JC Semi-rigid Rubber||Model JC has those hardness testers described in JIS K 6301 as 'suitable for samples found to have a hardness value above 70 according to Model A'. It features higher resolution for hardness measurement of hard rubber.|
|Model DHard Rubber Plastics||Similar to Model A, this model is defined as 'Durometer Type D' as described in various domestic and international standards. It is in widespread use for hardness measurement of plastics and hard rubber.|
