Based on analysis at the Rheology Research Center of the University of Wisconsin, a system of equations have been developed to allow users to quickly convert their durometer reading to Young’s Modulus.  This is clearly the fastest way to determine Young's modulus, is far less expensive that tensile testing.  This app increases the capability and efficiency of anyone holding a durometer.


Simply take the output value from your durometer, type it into the corresponding input in DuroMod™, hit calculate, and the conversion from durometer hardness to Young’s modulus appears before your eyes.


DuroMod™ conversion to Young's modulus allows hardness measurements on different scales to be compared.  This is especially handy for comparing patent claims framed in terms of durometer measurements of different scale.
