CALIPER

It is a digital tool used to measure internal and external diameters and depths, it allows obtaining exact measurements for greater precision.

MICROMETER

Equipment that measures the remaining compression deformation «compression set» in rubbers, this device consists of two parallel plates in AISI/SAE 1045 steel, coated with a layer of hard chrome, which prevents the samples from sticking and the device from sticking together. deteriorate, the spacers made of AISI/SAE 1045 steel whose thicknesses are in accordance with the ASTM D 395 standard, as well as the other test requirements are based on this standard
