The TQC Shore Hardness Gauge Test Stand is suitable for Shore A, C, and D* type Durometer. The test stand construction includes operating handle, adjustable glass stage, (height) adjustable Durometer fixture. With this test stand hardness tests of rubber or plastics with a Durometer can be performed more accurately and reproducibly.

When this Test stand is used with TQC Shore D meter an extra weight of 4000gr is necessary.

The TQC Shore Hardness Gauge is a reliable instrument for measuring the impression hardness of soft materials such as coatings, plastics and rubber. Equipped with a drag indicator, which holds the highest measured result. Delivery includes a simple test block. Optional accessoires: Set of Testblocks Operating stand Complies with: DIN 53505, ISO 868 and ASTM D 2240


The TQC Hardness Pen is a pocket instrument for testing the hardness and wear/scratch resistance of materials such as coatings, lacquers, plastics or related products. A tungsten carbide tip is drawn over the surface with a defined constant pressure. The pressure on the tip can be changed using the slide or by changing the spring. A visual mark on the surface after use of the TQC Hardness Pen indicates a fail of the surface hardness or wear/scratch resistance. Can be used on flat and curved surfaces. There are 2 versions available, the Standard and Pro.The Standard version is supplied with 3 springs and one tip:0-3N, graduation 10 g0-10N, graduation 50 g0-30N, graduation 150 gTip 1mm The pro version includes the above as well as:Tip 0,5mmTip 0,75mmPen holder with guidance wheels, which provides very stable load on tip and makes it easier to apply force.  The laser-engraved scale is clearly visible on the grey background. 


The TQC Pendulum Hardness Tester has a lot of unique features that ease defining hardness by the König and/or Persoz method as described in ISO 1522. Both methods work on the principle that the damping time of a pendulum oscillating on a sample indicates the hardness. The instrument has an easy menu-driven interface with jog dial. The automated electronic counting mechanism is not affected by reflections from the surrounding area. The water-level is located on the test specimen, rather than on the instrument’s base. Once the instrument is leveled further calibration is not required. The gas-spring supported transparent draft cover allows easy access to all parts of the instrument. TQC’s Pendulum Hardness Tester is a modular system. The instrument itself can be used for both the König and- Persoz method. Both pendulums should be ordered separately. After placing the correct pendulum, switching between the two measuring methods only takes a push of a button. The Pendulum is positioned fully automatically by means of a stepper motor. Also the release of the Pendulum is automated through electro-magnetic system. The end of a test is indicated by a visual and acoustic signal. The TQC Pendulum Hardness Tester base device is available as a 110VAC / 50/60Hz and a 230VAC / 50Hz model.
