Metric calibration weight for calibrating other weights, or electronic balances and scales
Stainless steel construction for stability, resistance to corrosion, and low magnetic susceptibility
Meets American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) specifications for calibration precision
Includes impact-resistant polypropylene case
The Adams Equipment stainless steel calibration weight meets American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) specifications and is designed for calibrating other weights, or electronic balances and scales. The weight is constructed of stainless steel for stability, resistance to corrosion, and low magnetic susceptibility. The calibration weight is supplied with an impact-resistant polypropylene case. A choice of ASTM specifications provides a range of calibration precision.
Calibration weights are used to measure the weight or mass of an object using a balance or scale, or to calibrate other weights or instruments. Calibration weights can be certified or uncertified. Certified weights meet strict guidelines for accuracy and can usually be recertified. Certified weights are used in labs where a high degree of accuracy and repeatability is required. Uncertified weights are used where a lower degree of accuracy is required, including student laboratories, rough weighting operations, and measuring force. Hooked and slotted weights are often used to measure pressure, torque, and tensile strength, and to demonstrate basic laws of physics. Calibration weights differ from lab weights, which are general purpose weights used to hold an object in place, similar to a paperweight.
Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.
Adam Equipment manufactures balances, scales, and related accessories for laboratory, educational, industrial, retail, and medical applications. The company, which was founded in the United Kingdom in 1972 and has an office in Danbury, CT, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 standards.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Good weight. - Came in a nice case. - Had certification from 2014 (purchased 2016). If you really need a Class 1 weight, the certification being 2 years old could be a problem. - If you need a class 2 weight for a 500g scale that measures down to 0.01 g, then this works great. - The weight arrived with no apparent blemishes and no fingerprints from previous miss-handling. - Used a plastic bag to handle the weight to avoid oils from my skin getting on the weight. My scale now thinks this is actually a 500.00 g weight... imagine that after using it to calibrate the scale! (Yes, I know... it was a joke).
Reasonable price for an actual calibration weight for my $20 scale. Now if weight making could catch up with modern technology advances in scales to bring the price of the calibration weight down....
Great Scale to go with this weight: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CFP0NFA/
