English term or phrase: single durometer
The blade is molded from material such as silicone of a single durometer.

Le duromètre est un appareil qui sert à mesurer la dureté d'un matériau, mais je ne comprends pas le sens de cette expression ici...
Merci !

Explanation:
There are composite blades which are made up of layers of material, each layer having it's own degree of measured hardness; typically, these composite blades are made up of two or three layers and each layer has a different hardness rating according to the durometer. Composite blades have the advantage of a softer, wiping edge with a harder, support layer which lends it strength or durability. In your text, the blade is made up of single layer of material that has just one hardness rating from the durometer.


Double- and triple-durometer squeegee blades
In recent years, squeegee blade manufacturers have come up with a way of blending materials of different durometers together in a single blade. The most basic approach is to place them back to back with a softer durometer printing edge backed up by polyurethane of a harder durometer. For example, the print side may be 60 durometers and the supporting side 90 durometers, a combination that's usually written 60/90. **Blades of more than one durometer are often called composite blades.**
The harder-durometer backing provides support for the lower-durometer side of the blade. This creates a firm squeegee with a printing edge that retains the flexibility to ride over rough-surfaced substrates and still lay down a good thick ink deposit.

Composite materials (or composites for short) are engineered materials made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties and which remain separate and distinct on a macroscopic level within the finished structure.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Composite_material

Le matériau composite est un assemblage d'au moins deux matériaux non miscibles (mais ayant une forte capacité d'adhésion). Le nouveau matériau ainsi constitué possède des propriétés que les éléments seuls ne possèdent pas.

On recommande l’utilisation d’une raclette dont le duromètre est réglé entre 50 et 60 pour l’application des encres de série 990.

Duromètre PICODENTOR® HM500 - Helmut Fischer
Cet appareil, qui a été développé grâce aux résultats des recherches les plus récentes, est particulièrment bien adapté pour les domaines d'applications suivants: **Couches de matériaux durs en général**, couches DLC ultra-minces, revêtements anti-poussière (gel pour sols par ex.), revêtements sur CD et Disques Durs de PC, couches très minces de peinture, surfaces ionisées par implants, couches nanométriques pour capteurs, implants utilisés dans les technologies médicales, effets de matrice dans les alliages, matériaux biologiques, matériaux céramique.

Duromètre
instrument mesurant la dureté. Spécifique aux pneus, cet instrument sert habituellement à mesurer la dureté du composé de gomme. Le duromètre peut aussi s'appliquer au résultat de dureté, par exemple : le duromètre du pneu est 60.
