Italian translation:strato impermeabile
Explanation:
dpc dovrebbe essere l'acronimo di damp-proof course, che secondo il Demauro parvia significa "strato impermeabile"
http://oxfordparavia.it/lemmaEng9291

DPC (Damp Proof Course) strips are used between the concrete structure (Leca lightweight concrete blocks etc.) and timber structures to prevent capillary movement of moisture into the timber. The most common case is between the foundation and the cill plate of a framed timber wall. Similar usage is found between concrete floors and framed timber walls and partitions. Normally the DPC over the foundation is manufactured from bitumen felt by cutting it into suitable strips
