Italian term or phrase: PVC espanso estruso
This is the context and I was wondering - would you translate "espanso" as foam in this case ?

"piano a due profondità e cinque lunghezza diverse, con profilo di testa di soli 3mm in PVC espanso estruso finito con verniciatura in cinque colori"
As ever - v. grateful for any help !
Thanks

extruded foam PVC


Explanation:
I found a couple of hits of espanso as foam at Eurodicautom (http://eurodic.ip.lu/cgi-bin/edicbin/EuroDicWWW.pl). One actually refered to polistirene espanso (foam polysterene).
Look it up yourself. Might find something else.
