Italian glass manufacturer CURVET (Gruppo Industriale Curvet), Europe’s leader in the fabrication of specialty curved glass, has launched its hydrophobic coating, Curvet shield, using DFI Technology, in the European market.
Mr. Roberto Bartolucci, President and Managing Director of CURVET, stated, "We are thrilled to have such innovative technology applied in all our glass markets, since Diamon Fusion® clearly offers unique advantages for a variety of niches".
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 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.
