Hardness and Density

Test instrument for measurements of the shore hardness and the density of rubber mixtures.


HT 3000

Hardness (resistance to indentation) is one of the most important properties of rubber products and parts. MonTech therefore offers a full range of handheld and benchtop precision hardness testers according to various scales and standards.

H&D 3000

2 instruments in 1: With the MonTech H&D 3000, hardness AND density testing of cured rubber samples is made simple, fast and reliable. Arbitrary test sequences are easily pre-programmed, samples are sequentially processed and test data is automatically collected, without the need for operator involvement. Due to the unique rotary tray design, no manual magazine handling is needed; the instrument can be continuously loaded and operated.

Hydrostatic weighing according ISO 2781, ASTM D1817
Shore A in accordance with: ISO 868, DIN 53505, ASTM D2240, ISO 7619, NFT 51-174, BS 903-A26
IRHD N in accordance with: DIN ISO 48, ASTM D1415, NFT 46-003, BS 903-A26

RD 3000

The RD 3000 compression density tester provides a simple and convenient way to determine the density of raw polymers, masterbatches and uncured rubber compound specimens of any shape or geometry. The instrument features an integrated precision scale for accurately measuring the weight of the specimen. In a second step, all air trapped in the sample is removed by compressing the material in a massive barrel - once stabilized - allows the volume to be determined. Once the test sequence is finished the density is automatically calculated and displayed on the integrated touchscreen. Optionally the instrument can be controlled and test results can be remotely acquired by the MonDevice software system.
