PVC expansion and stone profiles
Explanation:

...Johannes is right - hard to get these terms together, but I think it refers to two different items in one term...

At least there are references for expansion profiles - see:

Nachdem es im Deutschen keine Referenzen dafür gibt, würde ich eine möglichst wörtliche Übersetzung wählen...
