PTC®'s Model 409 ASTM Type D Durometer
measures the hardness of pipeline coating epoxies, plexiglass, epoxy, vinyl, cellulose acetate, and Kevlar. The favorite hand-held durometer of the pipeline coating inspectors.
Accurate readings can be obtained
in any position.
The instrument features a low glare serialized
dial with bold, easy to read numbers. The
durometer comes standard with a Max Hold hand
which maintains the peak reading until reset.
The case tapers to a base that is 1" x 1" to allow
better access to confined areas. A removable
top knob (8-32) threads permit both easy handheld
use or attachment to stands.
The Model 409 meets or exceeds the current ASTM D2240 Standards.

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.
