What is Durometer?

The Durometer is the international standard for measuring the hardness of rubber, plastic and other NON-METALIC materials. A durometer tool measures a compound's susceptibility to indentation, which should not be confused with durability or tensile strength as there is no inherent relationship across all compounds. Durometers are described in the American Society for Testing and Materials specification ASTM D2240. There are a variety of Durometer scales. Our products are measured using the "Shore A" Scale

Polyurethane

Exhibits excellent wear properties and leaves little to no residue or particulates ensuring an unmarked closure. Durometers up to 80-85 available on request.

Often matched to applications with white closures or caps to avoid marking. Suggested for smooth contact surfaces or minor serrations.

Durometer 50-60

A slightly higher durometer helps extend life while offering the same level of grip as white. The color makes it ideal for dark colored caps.

Durometer 60-70


Tan Rubber
