Explanation:
Effectivement, sans contexte, difficile de voir, surtout que tel quel, "plural" est employé comme nom plutôt que comme adjectif.

plural: pluriel (n. et adj.) (au pluriel)

plural-e: se dit de choses qui contiennent plusieurs unités
(mais pour "longue description plurale" "plural" aurait été adjectif; ici, il me semble que c'est un nom) (vs plurivoque: qui a plusieurs valeurs, plusieurs sens)

multiple/de dérivation: plural *whatever

plural layer material
matériau à couches multiples;
matériau multicouche

plural tap (Terme à éviter)
fiche multiple n. f.
fiche de dérivation n. f.

plural production / plural scattering
production plurale / diffusion plurale
