The Shimana Digital Durometers available in Shore A (SHPMDR176), Shore D (SHPMDR187) and Shore OO (SHPMDR212) scales will test a wide variety of applications and materials such as: rubber, polyester, pvc, leather, vinyl, polystyrene glass, foam, etc.

These Digital Hardness Testers are ergonomically designed to give exact hardness readings with no errors for accurate and repeatable hardness measurement of rubber, plastics and other elastomers.

It is highly recommended that, whenever possible, an operating stand be employed in performing durometer hardness tests.


These durometers can be used with the Shimana hardness test stand (sold separately or as a kit with durometer) to eliminate the speed and weight variables in hardness measurement. The Shimana Test Stand for Durometers was designed to provide the ASTM recommended forces for use in hardness measurements.


The test stand offers a constant load weight. The mass is centered along the indenter axis, providing a consistent load each and every test.

Using test stand in your hardness applications, the hardness value is not depending on operator force: the lever is used only to release the weight to produce the ASTM recommended force.

The Shimana hardness test stand is the ideal tool for repetitive or lab-type testing for users who must test either very large specimens, or test in a number of different durometer scales.

Need to have this new Shimana SHPMDR176/187/212 Series Digital Shore A, D, OO Durometers calibrated? While this gauge has passed a quality control check, having a calibration certificate for durometers might be required by your quality control system. Digital Measurement Metrology (owner of ProcessInstruments.ca) is a canadian metrology company with more than 25 years of experience. Our Brampton, Ontario based calibration lab has one of the most comprehensive ISO 17025 accredited calibration scope in Canada.

Do you have an old Shimana gauge to be calibrated? We might be able to calibrate Shimana durometers (Shimana SHPMDR176/187/212 Series or a different model) and provide an ISO, NIST traceable calibration certificate. Please contact our metrology lab for more info.
