Portuguese term or phrase: repé
Isto favorecia a formação de repés e uma fragmentação muito ruim, pois o desmonte saia para cima e não para frente.

O resultado na maior parte das vezes era que tinha que se fazer o desmonte com máquinas pequenas para retirar o repé que tinha ficado.

batten, lath

se for o mesmo que ripa (serrar, fazendo ripas; raspar ou limpar a terra), então acho que pode ser batten (a small board or strip of wood used for various building purposes, as to cover joints between boards, reinforce certain doors, or supply a foundation for lathing) ou lath (a thin, narrow strip of wood, used with other strips to form latticework, a backing for plaster or stucco, a support for slates and other roofing materials, etc)
