French term or phrase: ébullage (moulage au contact)
Plastics processing - contact moulding (moualge au contact). "Ebullage" is used to describe the part of the process where the bubbles are removed to ensure a smooth, bubble-free bonding, often with the use of a roller. Here's an extract from a survey report suggesting a possible origin for the osmosis which has been detected in the gel coat of boat's hull :

"L'origine semble être un défaut de mise en oeuvre lors de la procédure d'ébullage des premières couches de résine dans la moule, principalement dans les virures".

Thanks for all your help Paul. 'Debulking' (or 'compacting') precedes infusion in vacuum moulding - infusion being the part which remove the air bubbles - and is apparently not applicable to contact moulding. I ended up using the very long "during the roller stage to remove air bubbles from...". I eventually spoke to an English specialist who explained that as far as he knew there is no specific one worder for this process in English. Eh bien, tant pis!
