Italian glass manufacturer CURVET (Gruppo Industriale Curvet), Europe's leader in the fabrication of specialty curved glass, has been expanding DFI's hydrophobic technology, CURVET shield, in the European market. A recent strategic marketing meeting between DFI (exclusive licensor of the patented hydrophobic technology) and CURVET (licensee and marketing partner for the Italian glass sector) that took place in Bottega di Corbordolo, Italy, has been reported by both companies as very positive and promising.
Mr. Roberto Bartolucci, President and Managing Director of CURVET, very pleased after meeting with DFI's VP and Executive Director Guillermo U. Seta, reported: "Our solid customer base in Europe's been very keen and interested in DFI's technology and we've been noticing a consistent progressive increase in our glass orders receiving CURVET shield treatment, which clearly indicates the very good reception and satisfaction with DFI's enhanced hydrophobic technology. This added-value that DFI's technology provides is very important to Curvet since it reflects our core business by remaining up-to-date with the most innovative and latest technology applied in the glass industry."
CURVET is the only company in Europe that is able to produce bent glass of every type with unique and innovative solutions for every sector. A twenty-year experience in glass bending and the most advanced equipment have made CURVET a leading company in the field. The differentiation in equipment and the resulting flexibility are the key factors of Curvet's success, the only company so far to carry out the whole processing of flat glass into any kind of curved finished product. Curvet is also a manufacturer of tempered, laminated and security glass and has distribution and sales offices in Germany and the US.
Diamon Fusion® is a proprietary process (patented technology) of growing an optically clear film from the inside of the glass (or any other silica-based surface) out, filling the microscopic ridges of the substrate and then 'capping' it, creating a long lasting hydrophobic (water repellent) film. This film is permanently attached to the substrate, prevents damage and dramatically reduces the time required to maintain treated surfaces in residential, commercial, automotive or any other industrial applications.
