lac / varnish / resin / shellac


Explanation:
No pude encontrar la palabra alacado pero podría ser una variante específica de laca. Se utilizan en la construcción barnices o lacas para sellar las piedras de fachada.
Es una intuición pero quizás si se trata de una lista de materiales, podría ser. Espero que te sea una ayuda para seguir buscando...

stone veneering or veneer finishing for stone


Explanation:
"Lacado" would mean lacquer or some such material was used, but the prefix "a-" makes the process quite artificial. There's not much sense in using lac for exteriors, although there are special plastic finishes for stones that will have to be used under highly erosive conditions.
