CONT

On utilise des pistolets à godet supérieur ou à gravitation, c'est-à-dire montés au-dessus des pistolets [...] Lorsque le godet est sur le pistolet, la peinture descend jusqu'à la buse par son propre poids; il est de ce fait possible de gicler à des pressions très faibles.

OBS

pistolet à alimentation par gravité : terme uniformisé par le Comité du projet de lexiques (Nouveau-Brunswick).
