Tech/Engineering - Chemistry; Chem Sci/Eng / hazardous waste disposal
French term or phrase: thermofusibles
At the end of a list of waste products for disposal:

Eaux salines, eaux résiduaires, solvants halogénés et non-halogénés, liquides soufrés, mercaptans et dérivés odorants, acides organiques (acétiques, acryliques) polymérisants, réactifs, thermofusibles.

The GDT gives 'thermofusible' as the English equivalent for 'thermofusible', but I'm not convinced by it in this context.
