Fome-Cor

Description

[3A Composites formerly Monsanto Co., St. Louis, MO] A registered trademark for an acid-free laminated foam. Fome-Cor® is made from a rigid polystyrene core laminated with paper or plastic on both sides. The rigid, strong, flat panels are water-resistant and dimensionally stable. Direct sunlight will cause bleaching and degradation of any unprotected foam. Even though the foam is acid-free, the wood fiber paper may emit small amounts of organic acids, such as acetic acid. Fome-Cor® has been used as a protective backing for paintings.

Synonyms and Related Terms
