If the DV1 looks different, that’s because it is. Very different, in fact. Everything about the gun indicates that it’s not just a progression – it’s a revolution. Everything is new.New ergonomics. New air cap design. New fluid tip technology. Advanced co-axial air valve design. And not forgetting the advanced atomisation technology that sets a new precedent in performance and control.
No other DeVilbiss gun is built like it. Redesigned from the ground up. Precision engineered. The technicians in our Atomisation Centre of Excellence (who we call the ACE Team), threw out the rule book on this one. This is the spray gun for the professional refinisher who demands maximum speed, ultimate finish quality, pinpoint colour accuracy and the lowest possible energy and material consumption.
It’s time to let your talent shine. To show your true colours.

Fluid Tip Dynamics
We’ve completely re-engineered the fluid tip design for the DV1 using our unique Laminar Flow ArchitectureTM. The new range of fluid tips have been engineered to provide the smoothest path for fluid to travel resulting in faster application rates, more stable flow rates and consistent performance, particularly with the latest, very low viscosity materials.
The DeVilbiss engineers have stabilised the primary atomisation zone within the fluid tips and Laminar Flow ArchitectureTM technology significantly reduces the turbulent energy that can be found within the tips. What does this mean to you? Improved efficiency, a reduction in material consumption and even more control over application regardless of paint brand and climatic conditions.
The fit and feel of DeVilbiss spray guns are legendary. The DV1 employs the latest generation ergonomics and lightweight materials for maximum comfort and minimum fatigue - you don’t have to work hard to work smart. Every part of the DV1 has been designed and engineered for maximum performance, comfort and usability and cleaning couldn’t be easier with DV1’s smooth, easy to clean lines.
Precision engineered in solid brass, even the air cap has undergone a technical revolution. Precision drilling and advanced Air Management KineticsTM have taken atomisation performance to a new level, whilst significantly reducing noise. The cap also features a fast action thread ensuring rapid removal and replacement.
Professional automotive refinishers know that the key to performance in any spray gun is what’s known as “the front end”. The fluid tip and needle and of course, the all important air cap. With the DV1 we’ve achieved world-beating atomisation with high application speeds, at lower air pressures.
We’ve learnt how to control the chaotic event that occurs every time the trigger is pulled. The result is superior atomisation performance, by maintaining a consistent particle size throughout the spray pattern, ensuring accurate colour reproduction and flake lay, even with the notoriously difficult, highly pigmented silver basecoats. This means you get the job right first time, every time - reducing material consumption and maximising your earnings potential.
TRIGGER EMOTION NOISE
Less noise for your comfort, especially for the longer project.
Consistently achieves a narrow colour window for the closest colour matching.
New advanced fluid tip design reduces turbulence, minimising mottling/clouding.
A new combined air inlet and air control valve with 12 x higher precision sensitivity for smoother air control.
Reduced air pressure resulting in improved spray pattern control, atomisation consistency and improved transfer efficiency.
The DV1 air caps, with advanced internal geometry, result in a perfectly balanced, consistent spray pattern for a perfect finish.
The DV1 is available with a choice of two advanced air caps - The DV1-B and DV1-B+. These new HVLP and HVLP ‘Plus’ air caps represent the next generation of atomisation performance.
For typical HVLP applications the DV1-B is the perfect choice, delivering atomisation like no other DeVilbiss air cap. For high efficiency air cap performance at low pressure the DV1-B+ delivers performance equivalent to today’s ‘High Efficiency’ air caps.
With the introduction of DeVilbiss Air Management Kinetics™ the smooth laminar path the air travels in allows you to spray at lower air pressures providing higher transfer efficiencies, reducing material consumption and with no loss in performance.
Three fluid tips, available in 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3, complete the picture giving you total control in all climatic conditions. With the addition of DeVilbiss Laminar Flow Technology™ all three fluid tips give you a more stable fluid flow allowing for better colour reproduction. Combine this with the new high performance air caps – air turbulence is reduced giving a more even atomisation through the fan pattern, which in turn allows for better control, reducing the mottling/clouding effect.
