Max-Hand Durometer: Rex Durometer Canada Model 2000

Size: 2.25" x 6.125"H
Net Weight: 6 oz.
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. Features:

  • Reads maximum and creep
  • Cost effective, hand operated
  • Holds maximum reading until reset
  • Custom carrying case
  • One year warranty
  • Conforms to ASTM D-2240 and NIST Traceable

Available ASTM Types: A, D, B, C, DO, E, and O

Digital Rex Durometer: The Rex Digital DD-5

Size: 2.5" x 6.125"H
Weight: 7.15 oz.

The Model DD-5 digital durometer is Rex Gauge's latest innovation for performing timed hardness testing. The Model DD-5 is equipped with an internal adjustable timer and onscreen countdown that can be set to a desired elapsed time from 0-30 seconds. When enabled, the timer function will be automatically activated when the presser foot meets the test specimen. Up to 200 readings can be stored and viewed inside the durometer or downloaded through the USB port.

Available ASTM Types: A, D, B, C, DO, E, M, O, OO, OOO, and OOO-S

Vest-Pocket Durometer: Rex Model 1500

Size: .5" x 4.5"H
Net Weight: 1.5 oz.
Mass produced since the 1930's and patented by Rex in 1947, the Model 1500 is still considered to be the best all around instrument of its kind. While other manufacturers have attempted to copy the Rex design, none can offer the quality of a Rex 1500. With its light weight and small size, the user can carry it at all times. Should it be dropped, even if not in its leather carrying case, it will not be damaged or become inoperative 99 times out of 100. Because the gauge is so durable, the Model 1500 comes with a lifetime guarantee. The key to the gauge's durability is its sliding vernier scale- there are no cams, gears, or levers to wear out. This vernier scale holds the maximum reading, and is especially useful for testing in hard to reach areas. The vernier scale is marked in increments of 5 points, and with a little practice, one can obtain readings to within 1 point. Features:

  • Ultra lightweight
  • Excellent for hard to reach places
  • Virtually unbreakable
  • Superior accuracy
  • Precision construction
  • Easy to read
  • Holds reading until reset
  • Furnished with a leather pouch
  • NIST Traceable

Mini-Dial Durometer: Rex Model H1000

Size: 1.675" x 5.6"H
Net Weight: 3.85 oz.

The Rex H-1000 Mini- Dial Durometer is both compact and easy to use. Its small dial face and included leather clip-on carrying case make it easy for an inspector to carry the gauge- for work around the shop, or out in the field. The H-1000 durometer holds the maximum reading until reset by pressing the button at the top of the gauge. The max-hold feature and small dial size make the H-1000 a good choice for hard to reach places, or for out of sight testing. Features:

  • Small face (1.675" Diameter)
  • Easily fits into your pocket or clipped on belt
  • Increments of 1 from 0-100
  • One year warranty
  • Furnished with a leather carrying case

Tire Hardness Gauge: Rex Durometer Model 2100

Tire hardness can be a critical factor in setting up a race car. A tire that's too hard may sacrifice traction, while a tire that's too soft may give great traction but wear too quickly, and an unmatched set of tires may result in an ill handling car. To properly set up a car, a measure of tire hardness is necessary, and the easiest and most cost-effective way to obtain such a measure is to use a durometer.
The Type A durometer as specified by ASTM D-2240 is the gauge used by tire manufacturers to measure hardness of tire rubber. The gauge gives readings of hardness in durometer points on a scale of 0-100, with 100 being the hardest reading. Some race tires come from the factory with the durometer hardness noted on the side wall, but factors such as ambient temperature, track temperature, usage, and age of the tire can change the actual hardness of the tire from the factory hardness. Rex Gauge Company's 2100 Tire Durometer allows racers to quickly and accurately make checks of tire hardness. Unlike other "racing durometers" (which are just relative hardness gauges), the Rex 2100 is calibrated to the ASTM D-2240 standard for durometer hardness and is traceable to N.I.S.T. Thus, the Rex 2100 allows comparison with the factory tire specifications. The 2100 is a handheld gauge weighing only 4.2 oz. The indicator case, bezel, and barrel are all billet machined aluminum. Because of its billet construciton, and the fact that the durometer is manufactured in the USA by Rex Gauge Company (an industry leader in durometers for over 60 years), the craftsmanship that goes into the 2100 is unsurpassed. The gauge is furnished with a carrying case and a one year warranty.
