Its 4556 meters of altitude and the – 15ºC make it a rigid environment with unusual physical and atmospheric conditions.
That’s perfect, actually, for testing the reproducibility and reliability of Shore results.
That’s why we’ve decided to perform a test at 3 different altitudes using a hard plastic hardness test block.
– 1º Shore hardness test performed at 1238 mt
– 2º Shore hardness test performed at 3647 mt
– 3º Shore hardness test performed at 4556 mt
For every extra meter that was added, the Shore points measured were always the same: 81 Shore D.

We couldn’t bring all 13 instruments with us, to be frank! We wanted to bring the most common scale, but you will for sure know that there are 13 different Shore hardness test scales. We’ve discussed this topic it in a specific article.
The secret of its robustness and reproducibility lies in a family-run formula. If you want to see the details right away, click below.
