Introduction of Durometer Market
Durometers are devices which are used for the measuring the hardness of the materials such as rubbers, elastomers, polymers. The device i.e. durometer tests the depressions of different materials which is measured by applying a defined force. The depth of the depression reflects the hardness of the material. Different materials such as plastics, metals, rubber, fabrics and foams are measured using different types of scales of hardness such as type A and type C. for example type A scale measures soft plastic materials while type D scale is used to measure hard plastics.
There are a number of testing standards and units such as the Brinnell scale, the Rockwell scale and Leeb rebound hardness level, for example to measure the foam hardness or soft plastics Shore A and Shore S are used. Moreover durometers are also called as Shore durometers due to their popularity. Also to check the hardness of very thin and small materials or may be while measuring small regions of a sample micro hardness testing is performed which is another type to check the hardness of the samples. With the technology advancement the manufactures have manufactured hand held portable and compact durometers which are digital and equipped with internal memory which will take the measurements with accuracy and in minimum possible time.
Factor driving the Durometers Market
Durometers market is primarily driven by the technological advancements and digitization. The devices are used to measure the cushions of the wheel chairs, medical pads, injection seals with silicon septas, rubber stoppers which are used in laboratories, also they are used in minimally invasive devices and many more devices. With the increasing number of geriatric population and prevalence of diseases around the world manufacturing of new devices and techniques are driving the market as the new techniques are highly accurate, more efficient and take less time.
The digital durometer takes the measurements without the use of cables, has an internal memory which saves the data and with the features such as USB interface can transfer the data into another device. Moreover with the increase in the laboratory activates there has been a significant adoption of durometers.
