French term or phrase: buses clinquant
in fact there are two different nozzles in this text - the other being buses a levres - have looked everywhere (lip nozzle does not seem to be relevant to this text which describes a production belt for the depositing of a viscous product onto a plastic film) and can find nothing! any help gratefully received.

Tinsel nozzle/foil nozzle
Explanation:
Try the Grand dictionnaire terminologique

Buses is nozzle so you need to look up clinquant (tinsel?) and levres (mouth nozzle?)

agree  xxxBourth: Thin sheetmetal nozzle, unless "buse" is a pipe rather than a nozzle (which I rather think more likely).
