n A coined term for a plastisol that forms an article of very high Durometer hardness. Such hardness is obtained by means of compounding techniques that permit the use of relatively small amounts of plasticizer, and/or by the incorporation of monomers that serve as diluents at room temperature but crosslink or polymerize upon heating.
