French term or phrase: coupage PCP
My document says PCP = polyacrylates.

Then two occurences:

Emploi possible en coupage à 25 – 30 % en sec de PCP
and
Superplastifiants à fort maintien de maniabilité, pour bétons prêts à l’emploi notamment (coupage PCP)

Does this mean blending? With PCP?

Explanation:
Hi Amanda. Yes, I think you're right. "couper" here is used in the sense of "adding to" (diluting the mixture by 25-30%).

coupage PCP -> a PCP blend / mix
