What is durometer
The Shore durometer is a device for measuring the hardness of a material, typically of rubbers, polymers & elastomers. Lower numbers indicate less resistance (softer materials) and higher numbers indicate a greater resistance to indentation (harder materials).
The Shore A Hardness Scale measures the hardness of flexible mold rubbers that range in hardness from very soft and flexible to hard with almost no flexibility at all. The Shore D Hardness Scale measures the hardness of hard rubbers, semi-rigid plastics and hard plastics.
