Diamon Fusion® International, Inc. (DFI), global developer and exclusive supplier of the Diamon Fusion® patented hydrophobic technology, was recently selected by C.R. Laurence Company to provide their highly efficient coating system to CRL's headquarters expansion project. The project has been completed with the application of DFI's enhanced hydrophobic coating at CRL's newly renovated corporate headquarter buildings at Los Angeles, California. Five large panels of _" etched glass were used as a focal point in this expansion project and required a protective treatment to prevent staining.
Jim Audette, long time Assistant to CRL's President, reported: "Due to the nature of this project, we required the highest performance hydrophobic coating available in the market place to assure that fingerprints will not appear on the heavy sandblasted glass installed at our newly renovated facilities. Many of our best customers have been licensees of DFI for several years now and on their recommendation, we used it."
Danny Donahue, Manager of CRL's Technical Sales Department-Shower Division, added: "The fact that the coloring of the sandblasting was not compromised by the Diamon Fusion® process, was a key element in choosing Diamon Fusion® since our goal was to maintain the sandblasted look of the glass in its natural form. DFI's coating was quite successful in taking care of our needs".
