grooved foam
Explanation:
Lots of hits on ALTA VISTA & GOOGLE for grooved foam. Wuide range of contexts when enter a search request with "grooved foam protection" or similar. Seems to be a common form of this material : cf. sports protection, construction materials, fire protection, industrial protective equipment.

Trough-shaped Amortiflex foam


Explanation:
Very little context from your sentence but it seems like a foam (protection) shaped like a trough (gouttiere). Amortiflex looks like a brand name.

Follow the links for foam protection.
