The Max-Hand 2000 durometer is Rex Gauge Co.’s latest innovation for the testing of specimens with creep. The Max-Hand 2000 has a max- hand and an active hand for observing the creep characteristics of a specimen. What makes the Model 2000 unique is the magnetic-drag maximum reset mechanism. The user simply rotates the reset knob on the front of the gauge to clear the previous reading. The simplicity of the reset mechanism ensures a lifetime of use, and makes the Max- Hand 2000 the most affordable durometer for testing specimens with creep.
Creep refers to the tendency of the durometer indentor to continue to penetrate a specimen over time, giving lower durometer readings. For example, if the durometer is held against a specimen in full contact and with constant pressure, the durometer reading will decrease over a period of seconds after the initial reading is taken. So, in a specimen with creep, the initial reading may be 35.0 durometer points, while the reading after three seconds may be 33.5 durometer points.
