          JOHN D. SMITH, Administrative Patent Judge.                                 



                                 DECISION ON APPEAL                                   
                    This is an appeal pursuant to 35 U.S.C.  134 from                
          the final rejection of claims 21 through 33.  Claims 19 and 20              
          stand withdrawn from further consideration as directed to a                 
          non-elected invention.                                                      
                    Claim 21 is representative and is reproduced below:               
                    21.  A gasketing compound exhibiting low plasticizer              
          migration and low marring effect on painted surfaces compris-               
          ing:                                                                        
                    (a)  a first vinyl chloride resin having an                       
                         inherent viscosity greater than about 1.02,                  
                         a porosity greater than about .34 cc/gm and                  
                         having a high gel content;                                   
                    (b)  a second vinyl chloride resin having an                      
                         inherent viscosity of at least about 1.02,                   
                         a porosity of at least about .34 cc/gm and                   
                         having a low gel content, or no gel content,                 
                         the inherent viscosity differing from the                    
                         inherent viscosity of said first vinyl                       
                         chloride resin; and                                          
                    (c)       from an effective amount up to about 80                 
                         parts per 100 parts of resin of an external                  
                              plasticizer.                                            
                    The reference of record relied upon by the examiner               
          is:                                                                         
                                          2
