Portuguese term or phrase: betão de limpeza
Colegas,
Encontrei esta expressão num documento moçambicano intitulado:
"Memória descritiva e Especificações Técnicas para trabalhos de construção"
E neste contexto:
"Sapata de fundação:
A sapata será em betão simples B180, não controlado, com as dimensões apresentadas nos desenhos, e será assente sobre um betão de limpeza com 80 kg de cimento /m3 de betão".
Agradecia uma ajuda com a sua tradução pois não sei se: "cleaning concrete" está certo.

blinding (concrete)
