In this Jaycon guide, we will explore how to measure the hardness of soft plastics using different scales. We will learn about the Shore 00 scale, used for very soft rubbers and gels.

We will also discover the Shore A scale, which measures materials of intermediate hardness, such as flexible rubbers and moderately hard plastics.

Finally, we will delve into the Shore D scale, used to evaluate hard rubbers and rigid plastics. We will focus mainly on the Shore A hardness scale and, throughout the book, we will discover the processes and methods necessary to perform these measurements effectively.
