Carlisle Fluid Technologies has introduced the DV1 Clearcoat Spray Gun to the DV1 family of DeVilbiss Automotive Refinishing® products.This revolutionary clearcoat gun helps painters achieve ultimate control, comfort and consistency in less time with more cost savings.
The DV1 Clearcoat Spray Gun is designed specifically to provide optimization in spraying the range of leading clearcoats on the market today. It joins the DV1 Basecoat Spray Gun, which transformed the industry through its revolutionary design and optimization of basecoat application when it launched in 2018.
“The DV1 Clearcoat Spray Gun builds on the worldwide success of the DV1 Basecoat Spray Gun, offering a new generation of superior guns for the ultimate finish,” said George Toskey, Director, Global Marketing. “The DV1 Clearcoat gun’s innovative features allow painters to push clearcoat atomization to the next level – giving them more comfort and more control, while delivering that glass-like, mirror finish that they love. Painters will experience the reliability, consistency and performance they need to give them confidence in knowing that they can get the job done right the first time.”
The DV1 Clearcoat gun includes innovative features that provide quality results and a comfortable fit and feel when in use. The groundbreaking, all-new DV1-C PLUS Clearcoat Air Cap delivers superior high-efficiency performance while spraying industry-leading clearcoats, including high-solid clears, low-to-medium-solid clears and low-VOC (solvent exempt) clears.
This inventive air cap provides a consistent, homogeneous spray pattern that lays the clear flat and allows painters to easily wet up a surface, while minimizing runs and sags on vertical panels. By evenly distributing fine, uniformly sized paint particles, the air cap visibly demonstrates its superior performance with a flawless finish.
The DV1 Clearcoat also includes an all-new fluid tip optimized for global clearcoat applications. This new tip design increases fluid flow while stabilizing air flow, minimizing material usage and providing significant paint savings. Whether a painter likes to apply the clear heavy and fast or use a slower, soft pattern, the DV1 Clearcoat can work with both styles and adjust accordingly. The gun is easy to use, giving painters excellent control during the application process.
With a new black matte finish, the DV1 Clearcoat boasts a better grip for easy handling, ensuring maximum comfort on the job, while providing more power for higher productivity. Through faster performance, proven paint savings, and superior atomization, the DV1 Clearcoat Spray Gun gives painters the confidence to know that they can achieve a high-quality, perfect finish every time.
