Binks pioneered the development of liquid spray finishing technology over 100 years ago and continues to set the standard for industrial spray finishing.
The Binks of today started in the basement of Marshall Field & Company in 1892, when Joseph Binks figured out how to spray the walls instead of brushing them, and saved a lot of time. Soon he used his invention to rescue the opening of the 1893 Columbian Exposition: Just days before the opening, nine of ten exhibit buildings stood unpainted, but Binks saved the day.
Just before the 1920s, Binks introduced its first hand spray gun. Binks introduced its popular Mach I spray gun in 1989. The Mach I spray gun is used to apply coatings to the heat shield tiles on NASA’s space shuttle. Binks was acquired by Illinois Tool Works in 1998 and became part of the Industrial Finishing business unit. Since 1890, when Binks introduced the first cold water airless paint spraying machine, Binks has provided the world with superior spray finishing technology.
Today, you can find Binks spray finishing technology at work in virtually every industry around the world.
