English term or phrase: Polyeurethene
This may have been a typo in the text, can't find it in tech dictionaries. Any idea? It's a substance used in varnish.

French translation:polyuréthane
Explanation:
Je suis ingénieur chimiste, et je n'ai jamais entendu parler de polyurethene, donc je pense qu'il y a une faute de frappe dans le texte. Polyurethane, par contre, est une substance très repandue. Elle est utilisée surtout pour les mousses, mais aussi pour des vernis.

polyeurethene


Explanation:
I didn't found it either, but I think it might be the same word in French. I'd write it the same with an accent grave on the 3rd "e".

polyuréthane


Explanation:
In English it should be polyurethane. I found the translation in Routledge's Technical Dictionary, and from personal experience, it is the varnish used on wood furniture but also many other things.
