Spanish term or phrase:encharcamientos
Humedecer la superficie hasta la saturación, pero evitando *encharcamientos*
Preparation prior to applying a chemical treatment to paving. I'm pretty sure I know what it's talking about: Wet the surface to saturation (i.e. until it can't absorb any more) but avoiding... (accumulation at the surface/ pools/excess water).
The only specific term I've found is 'ponding' but I don't think it's appropriate here and my instinct is to 'explain' it in simple words rather than using a technical term. Any suggestions? Thanks.
