This thermoplastic (PVC) heads the list of dip moldable materials
because of it's long history of success, ease of processing,
affordability, and prevelence in the dip molding industry.
Plastisol is liquid at room temperature and once exposed to a certain
elevated temperature, gels and remains a solid.
This polymer can range in hardness from 33 (softest) to 96 (hardest)
Shore A scale durometer and offer temperature resistance from -20 degF
to 160 degF.
