The tooling includes a tool base having a tool aperture, and an insert having a sealing projection. The insert is located at least partially in the tool aperture. The sealing projection is configured to create a seal between the substrate and the decorative covering at least partially around a substrate aperture in the substrate. The substrate aperture is at least partially smaller than the tool aperture so as to form an overlapping seal area between the sealing projection of insert and the substrate. A manufacturing method can create a foam-less region between the decorative covering and the substrate.

The valve is moveable between an open position and a closed position. A resilient member is configured with a biasing force to bias the valve to the closed position. The biasing force is overcome when fluid is heated downstream of the valve and exceeds a predetermined pressure level to allow backflow into the fluid cavity.
