Spanish term or phrase: papetas
From the context I guess this either refers to a cleaning material of some kind (cotton pads?) or to a cleaning fluid.
Context: "Para la intervención de limpieza en todo el conjunto de murales, techos policromados y mármoles se utilizaron papetas y distintos disolventes" and later: "La eliminación de la costra negra [...] no ofreció buenos resultados ante ningún disolvente o papeta, ya que esta costra, más dura que la propia pintura original, se encontraba además dentro de los poros de la capa pictórica"

poultices
Explanation:
Mira este ejemplo, tomado del manual LIMPIEZA POR PAPETAS - REACTIVOS (CLEANING POULTICES - REAGENTS
NETTOYAGE PAR COMPRESSES - REACTIFS):

Sal inorgánica utilizada en soluciones acuosas con otros reactivos e
inertes para la preparación de papetas de limpieza para superfi cies
pétreas y frescos. La papeta de limpieza química más conocida en
la cual se utiliza el Bicarbonato de Sodio es la AB 57 (formulación
del I.C.R. de Roma).

An inorganic salt used in aqueous solutions with other reagents and
inert materials for the preparation of cleaning mixtures and poultices
to be applied to stone surfaces and frescoes. The most famous
chemical cleaning poultice inside which Sodium Bicarbonate is
used is AB 57 (I.C.R. formulation - Rome).

Te recomiendo leer el artículo POULTICE en Wikipedia, que hacia el final habla de la limpieza de piedras y superficies pétreas.

Para que quede más claro. El manual que cité arriba es un manual multilingüe. El párrafo que copié se refiere al bicarbonato de sodio, que, como dice ahí, se usa bastante en papetas.
