French term or phrase: grabon de soudure
The context is connecting sensors and their cables to a computer system using manual soldering tongs.

En effet, de nombreux detecteurs sont deteriores par les mouvements des pinces et par l'agglomeration de grabons de soudure dane le montage.

It's the word "grabon" I can't find anywhere.

Thanks!

Explanation:
I did manage to find one instance of grabon, a quiz for winning a free stay at a resort, doing a Google search. While it doesn't actually explain what a grabon is, I think I can deduce its meaning from the quiz item; that is, a "bouse de vache" is a "cow plop." This must be the right answer for the quiz, and the term you are looking for as well, since solder does form little "plops" when it falls onto a surface. So when you finish your translation, if you want to win that freebie, you can go to the following website:

"Dans la haute partie de la vallée, le bois était relativement rare, et il venait à manquer l'hiver pour se chauffer. Les habitants faisaient
alors des réserves de combustible d'une nature très particulière, qui étaient appelées grabon. Savez-vous de quel matériau un grabon
était-il constitué ?
d'herbe séchée en bottes
de fagots de brindilles
de bouse de vache séchée"
