Tech/Engineering - Metrology / Lever balance
English term or phrase: cpss
Hi everybody,

Any idea of what "cpss" stands for in "The detachable top pan is made of CPSS with a hook at its bottom for specific gravity work and suspended weights."

The subject is the description of a lever balance.

Thanks in advance.
