French term or phrase: talochon a mastiquer
"mettre contenu du kit sous forme de texte :
bac de nettoyage
grille et rouleau d'essorage
Talochon éponge
Talochon à mastiquer
100 croisillons écart 4mm"


this is the full list or phrase

i think talochon is a trowel and the sponge one is used for cleaning the tiles but not sure about mastiquer? is this putty?

also the croisillons i think are the little white spaces you put between the tiles but ecart 4mm is this 4mm gap or spread?

Explanation:
If you look at the talochon here :
http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.tomecanic.com...

you see they are what we would call "floats", though instead of having a steel or wooden face they are faced with foam or rubber, depending whether they are "grouting floats" (presumably) or "cleaning floats".

Grout is the cement mix you put between tiles once they are in place, the width of the grout joint being determined by that of the croisillons used to space the tiles.
