French term or phrase: Emaillotage
Texte: Vernis épargne à 100µ du bord céramique et modification du routage pour amélioration emmaillotage.
The author is not good at French but there you go.

Please help me with the word emmaillotage. I do not accept swaddle, there is a specific word I've been told by an engineer.
Text translated into English below except EMMAILLOTAGE.

I tried to think of words in this field that would be synonyms for enveloping.

Solder mask or solder resist is a lacquer like layer of polymer that provides a permanent protective **coating** for the copper traces of a printed circuit board (PCB) and prevents solder from bridging between conductors, thereby creating short circuits. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solder_mask

With the increase in modern manufacturing methods using wave soldering and reflow
soldering, the finish has proved unacceptable due to the circuit's exposure to high
temperatures during assembly which causes reflow of the tin/lead coating under any
solder resist coatings. This has led to lifting and de-lamination of the resist if the tin/lead
coating is too thick.

This method is used to replace solder mask or coatings on circuit boards. Most replacement coatings can be applied by dipping, brushing or spraying.

A coating composition, which is suitable for the production of photopolymerizable coatings on circuit boards for the production of solder resists, comprises:

I also considered webbing and wrapping:

The wave soldering process
The many ways of keeping components in place include:...
• ‘Shrink wrapping’ with a plastic film heat-shrunk over the entire assembly. Problems arise when the components are not of a uniform height: tall parts can become twisted, whilst nearby components are left loose. Also the adhering plastic film may not allow flux fumes and expanding air to escape, causing blow-holes and insufficient solder rise
• ‘Spray webbing’: applying a top surface spray that glues the components in place and comes off during cleaning. This can be applied as a hot melt system or as an evaporating spray

Solder Webbing
The term is often applied to wave soldering and refers to a condition where the solder mask on the surface of the printed board is softened as it passes over the solder wave. The process problem can be seen on selective soldering and solder levelling. A solder mask, as its name suggests, is applied to reduce solder wetting selected areas of a printed board design. If a solder mask, sometimes also referred to as solder resist, does soften fine particles of solder can adhere to the surface during soldering. This situation is generally a result of inadequate curing of the mask materials during the printed board manufacturing process. It can also be caused by the incorrect mixture of the mask resin and hardener, the time or temperature of curing or the UV exposure often referred to as a “Bump”… Other names that are applied to this type of fault are **spidering, snail trails and oxide trails**. [see pdf for the complete explanation]
{The photos show different examples of solder on the board surface, the best one to show webbing is the top one.}

Wave Solder Parameters
Line speed, pre-heat, solder temperature, amount of applied flux, number of solder waves all affect the degree of **solder-bridging, solder-webbing, and solder balling** observed. Generally speaking, hotter pre-heats and solder waves, slower line speeds, and more flux will minimize solder ball formation.

it's usually emaillage, but since you said the author's French wasn't that good maybe it could be, it seels to fit the context
