The Applied Technical Services Family of Companies performs hardness testing for rubber, thermoplastics, and other elastic materials in adherence with ASTM D785 testing standards.

ASTM D785 Hardness Testing
ATS’ mechanical testing experts apply decades of experience to ensure exceptional service quality on all hardness testing services. Hardness testing thermoplastics and rubber consists of preparing the test sample, subjecting the sample to controlled, predetermined levels of force with a hardness tester or durometer, measuring the depth of the indentation, calculating the hardness with scales, and providing clients with an in-depth report detailing every step of the process. ASTM D785 ensures reliable, consistent, repeatable results that precisely identify material hardness to assess the subject’s viability for its intended use.
