Lever-Operated with Pneumatic Damper

SY-L (Shore A, B, E, O, OO, Asker C)
SY-H (Shore C, D, DO)

Standard Features

  • Simple lever operation
  • Pneumatic damper maintains consistent test speed
  • Handwheel enables easy height adjustment
  • Heavy-duty metal construction
  • Accommodates multiple durometer scales

SY Manual Durometer Stand eliminates the speed and load variables which occur when hand-testing samples with a durometer. The load and test speed the durometer applies to the sample are kept constant with a standard weight and pneumatic damper. Multiple scales can be tested using the appropriate durometer weight and damper setting.


Use the handwheel to adjust clearance from the sample. Lightly pull the lever forward to start the durometer moving down.

Optional Auto Contact Adapter

Optional Auto Contact adapter automatically aligns the durometer foot parallel to the sample surface to comply with ASTM D2240 requirements, eliminating the need for user verification before testing.

Durometers are not included.
