ASTM D2240 Type 1 Specimen to Indenter.
Precision engineered durometer stands are capable of applying the specimen to indentor in a manner that minimizes shock. When properly used, this stand and your durometer will increase repeatable hardness measurements.
The table is self-aligning to allow testing of nonparallel material for increased repeatability. These stands will test materials up to 5” thick. Custom stands are available for larger samples.
