Compact Moving Die Rheometer


The MDR-C is a moving die rheometer designed for simplicity and value providing cure testing for general rubber applications. Its smaller footprint means more effective use of bench space, while its LCD touch screen and user interface provide convenient stand-alone operation with data output to a PCL3-compatible USB printer or flash drive.
