ASTM D2240 Shore Hardness
ASTM D2240 test method is utilized to evaluate Durometer Hardness or Shore Hardness of polymeric and plastic materials. The Shore Hardness value is used as a quality control parameter for polymers, elastomers, plastics, and rubbers to be used in various applications.
Shore Hardness test by ASTM D2240 method measures the hardness of a material, specifically polymers, elastomers, plastics, and rubbers. Shore Hardness value decides the relative hardness of these soft materials. Therefore, theShore Hardness or Durometer Hardness test is important to calculate the penetration of a particular indentor into the material under a specific condition of force and time. In addition, the hardness value is useful to ascertain the hardness of elastomers as a quality control measure on batches of materials.
Firstly, the specimen is put on a hard flat surface to carry out the ASTM 2240test. After that, the indentor for the instrument is pressed into the specimen by keeping it parallel to the surface. Then with the firm contact of the specimen, the hardness of the specimen is read within one second (or as mentioned by the client).
The test specimens are usually 6.4 mm (¼ inch) thick. Several specimens can be placed one over another to achieve the 6.4 mm thickness, but a single specimen is preferred.
The hardness scales Shore A and Shore D are commonly used to derive the score. The A scale is used for softer, and the D scale is for harder materials.
ASTM D2240 is a standard test method used to determine the relative hardness of soft materials, usually plastic or rubber.
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 test is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etch solutions used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
