PTC®'s new Half Point Durometer has a total accuracy of
1/2 point for the most stringent material testing. The significant advances in polymers which are materials with characteristic mechanical and physical properties controlled by the structure and the method synthesis make this certified durometer the ultimate working lab durometer.
A written calibration certificate NIST/A2LA to ISO 17025 is included with this durometer.
A top knob with 8-32 threads permits both easy handheld use and attachment to test stands or the accessory
Model 441 1kg Constant Load Deadweight.
The Model 441 will allow even more consistent measurements when taking readings.

For a complete calibration check of mainspring, and visual and mechanical check of indenter, the instrument should be returned to PTC® (see Guarantee &Calibration Service) or refer to ASTM D2240 Specifications. PTC® recommends the unit be returned at least every 12 months for this check. For a quick field check, follow the guideline below. Under no circumstance should a test block be used as a standard to calibrate a durometer.
1. The pointer should read zero when no force is applied to the indenter of the durometer.
2. Hand hold the durometer and insert the indenter into the hole of the calibrated test block. Apply enough force to make firm contact between the top surface of the test block and the base of the durometer. The dial reading should agree with the value stamped on the check block (±1). Several tests should be made and the results averaged.
3. The indenter must protrude 0.098 to 0.100 inches below the base of the durometer.
4. When the indenter is fully displaced, the durometer should read 100 points. Use care as to not damage the tip of the indenter.
