Hardness tester FAPI-SHORE

The hardness tester FAPI-SHORE is a manually operated measuring instrument, with which the hardness of a material can be measured in a simple, fast and safe way.

The function is fully mechanical. A round, clearly arranged and glare-free scale between 0 Shore and 100 Shore, as well as its subdivision into 100 units makes the hardness value very easy to read.

We can supply you with FAPI-SHORE hardness testers for all common measuring methods and standards.
