It is with regret we wish farewell to one of our longest associates, Marc Sinclair, who designed and maintained our IT systems since the start of the company nearly thirty years ago.  Marc leaves us to seek new challenges from August 1st .

UK Calibrations now supplies the full range of ZwickRoell Analogue and Digital Shore testers and spares. 

Shore Testers are devices for measuring the hardness of polymers, elastomers, and rubbers.  We have many years of experience with this equipment and welcome your enquiries.

You can download product information covering the range that we support here for analogue and here for digital.

The latest UKAS Accreditation (see here on the UKAS website.) Includes new Vickers micro-hardness scales of HV0.05 and HV0.025 as well as Knoop at HK0.05 and HK0.025 making UK Calibrations only a handful of companies able to calibrate at these loads.

With micro-hardness becoming more common for the testing of alloys and resins UK Calibrations has the capability and is equipped to calibrate your equipment at these new low scales.

One of the commonest requests we get is "We've lost our certificate, we have an audit, could you please send us a copy?"  We have always been happy to do this (even if it meant looking back over many years with only a serial number and a vague date :)  But how much better would it be if you, the customer, had 24/7 access to your certificates on our database?  The UK Calibrations Document Vault allows you to do just that, better still the service is free of charge (Terms and conditions apply).

 Universal hardness tester for instrumented indentation tests

Instrumented indentation, also known as depth-sensing indentation or nano-indentation, is an increasingly popular method of measuring the mechanical response of a wide range of materials.
