DeVilbiss Automotive Refinishing


DeVilbiss products are used with unequaled success in the automotive refinishing market. DeVilbiss equipment provides awesome atomization of high-solid clears that leads to glass like finishes. DeVilbiss equipment is optimized to virtually eliminate mottling and striping with metallic base coats, plus produce excellent color match.

DeVilbiss has maintained its commitment to innovative technology. The DeVilbiss team of engineers uses the same design tools used to develop NASCAR combustion systems along with NASA combustion systems for the space shuttle. Combined with our state-of-the-art manufacturing machinery, we continue to develop the most advanced spray guns the market has ever seen.

Founded in 1888 when Toledo, Ohio physician Dr. Allen DeVilbiss combined a bulb, some tubing, and the base of an oil can to create the first atomizer for health care.

In 1907, Thomas DeVilbiss, an inventor in his own right, experimented with adapting the original atomizer to create a spray gun to meet the challenges of spray finishing. Mass production was beginning to evolve at this time and Thomas DeVilbiss' spray gun technology proved to be a revolutionary addition to the paint and lacquer coating applications on the furniture and automotive finishing assembly line. Spraying the lacquer reduced drying time to hours instead of weeks and the spraying of paint replaced hand brushing, helping to create new jobs and increase productivity in manufacturing.

Purchased by Illinois Tool Works in 1990, DeVilbiss continues to set the standard for spray finishing through its research and development, innovative product line, and commitment to customer service.
