Spanish term or phrase: p.p. de guardavivos de PVC
Hi everyone,

I am translating a quotation from a building company from Spanish into English and the abbreviation "p.p" keeps appearing. Here's an example:

"...aplacado de mármol en piezas de 60x30 cm. En baños/aseos/cocina recibido con mortero porcelánico, p.p de guardavivos de PVC..."

Could this mean "piezas"?

Any help will be greatly appreciated, but please let me know if you need more background info.

Thank you!

English translation:proportional share of PVC corner beads
Explanation:
PVC corner beads are used at corners with drywall and other materials used for interior walls. I think what is going on here is that a proportional share of the cost of PVC corner beads for the project will be assigned to this budget item, the installation of the 60 x 30 cm marble pieces.
