Thicker versions of thermobimetal can be heated at higher temperatures (above 250˚F) during construction to curl into the ideal configuration and be fitted in tight spaces. Once cooled, the piece is constricted in a partial curl to make a deeper profile and pre-tensioned surface. Because the thermobimetal pieces want to flatten, the resulting surface is strong, lightweight and porous.
