Urethane Hardness

ESCO Plastics’ urethane elastomers are available in different levels of hardness.

The firmness and rigidity of elastomers is measured by durometer – the ASTM standard used for measuring the hardness of plastic, rubber, and other non-metallic materials.

Durometer measurement scales range from 0 to 100 and represent the hardness between different materials.

A higher durometer elastomer is harder than a lower durometer elastomer:

10A – 50A: Very soft, best suited for shock absorption

50A – 80A: Soft, used for particle impingement applications

80A – 90A: Medium resilience used for abrasive applications due to the longevity of the material

90A – 95A: Hard, works best in impact and sliding types of abrasion applications

60D – 75D: Very hard, works well in bearing and bushing application

For more than a half-century, ESCO Plastics has manufactured the highest quality urethane parts in the market.

Our durable, reliable components will:

  • Significantly extend the service life of your equipment
