The horizontally and vertically foamed products of Trocellen are converted in various ways, such as lamination processes, die cutting, compression moulding, perforation and embossing. By thermoforming closed-cell, crossed-linked polyethylene or polypropylene foams are given custom contours. The foam is heated and then, using an embossing roller or an embossing die, the foam surface gets the desired motive. The embossing dies are milled using CAD/CAM techniques or are directly cast from a model. The foam materials are available with various fire protection classifications and hardnesses; the gross densities can be customized. In form of boards they can be assembled to create large surfaces. The material is dimensionally stable at temperatures up to 203°F (95°C).
