French term or phrase: poids posé
This appears in the following two sentences:
1) Comme pour l'ensemble des produits finis , l'activité est appréciée par des données de mesure de poids. Le poids de rechapage correspond au poids de produits posés.
2)l’analyse économique est fondée sur le poids posé lors du rechapage, et non sur le poids total de l’enveloppe rechapée. Le poids posé est en relation avec la valeur économique apportée à l’Entreprise.

added weight
Explanation:
remanufactured tyres are made from used tyres on which the remanufacturer adds rubber, thus the added value of the enterprise can be related to the added weight of the products, rather well explained by this context.
"posé" in the context of tyres and wheel should be "fitted", but the rest of the sentences clearly indicates that it deals with the weight of rubber added to the used tyres.

added material weight /


Explanation:
The context seems to be tyre remoulding (GB)/ tire retreading.
poids = weight, here it means quantity of material
posé = put, here it means applied, or used and since it is about retreading it is the "added" material.
The author explains that on an economical point of vue the quantity of the added material is much more important than the total tire weight ("enveloppe" is in this context frequently used as a synonym for "pneu") once it is retreaded.
