By co-incidence I had searched  the Trade-mark Database of the
Canadian Intellectual Property Office at
for the term FOME-COR and found the following:

    FOME-COR: Laminated panel composed of at least one lamina of
    expanded polystyrene and at least one other lamina, such as,
    paper, metal foil or plastic film.  Trade-mark used in Canada
    since at least as early as June 27, 1966. Registered in USA on
    August 29, 1961 under No. 720686.  Registrant: Monsanto Company.
    Current owner: International Paper Co.

A similar search of the US Trade and Patent Office
<URL:> for the same term yielded the

    FOME-COR: Laminated Panel Composed of at Least One Lamina of
    Expanded Polystyrene and at Least One Other Lamina, Such as,
    Paper, Metal Foil, or Plastic Film; DATE OF FIRST USE:
    1956.09.23; DATE OF FIRST USE IN COMMERCE: 1957.07.03
