Shore Scale
This scale shows the relative hardness and durability of materials. The lower the number on the scale, the softer the nature of the substance will be. The Shore A rating is used to describe these lower density materials. A higher number on the scale indicates a harder material that is less susceptible to bending and is denoted by a Shore D rating.
