capa ligera / capa gruesa


Explanation:
Based on the following texts, and your context, especially the measurements, I think these would be the right translations.

Para impedir que se marquen las juntas o fijadores en donde los muros y plafones estén
sujetos a luz rasante intensa artificial o natural y/o se vayan a decorar con pintura de aceite
( cascarón, semi aceite, o aceite), la superficie del panel de yeso deberá cubrirse con una
capa ligera de compuesto para juntas (skim coat ) para igualar la absorción , antes de pintar.
