Diamon Fusion® International, Inc. (DFI),, global developer and exclusive supplier of the Diamon Fusion® patented nanotechnology, reached a license agreement with GLASSPRO POLSKA to distribute DFI’s nanocoating in POLAND. The agreement provides GLASSPRO POLSKA the ability to distribute DFI’s nanotechnology in various glass markets throughout Poland.

DFI’s nanocoating supplies a full range of enhanced hydrophobic properties to the treated glass surface along with an anti-microbial property by inhibiting or decreasing the growth of mold and bacteria on the treated surface, creating a healthier environment to live in.

Piotr Chrzaniecki, Managing Director of GLASSPRO POLSKA, reported: “I am thrilled about the multiple business opportunities that the DFI hydrophobic nanocoating will provide in Poland; the safety added-value on bad weather driving conditions (for automotive glass applications) along with its low-maintenance properties are all tangible features for end-consumers to appreciate and value."

“The expansion in Eastern Europe is in line with DFI’s approach on EU emerging markets, by diversifying revenue streams, which, in addition, will solidify our positioning (in the EU market) on long term basis”,
stated Guillermo Seta, DFI’s Vice President and Executive Director of DFI Global Operations.

Poland, a new member of the European Union (EU) as of May 2004, is the most rapidly developing large member of the EU. Poland has steadfastly pursued a policy of economic liberalization throughout the 1990s and today stands out as a success story among transition economies. With Germany as its main trade partner (over 30% of its economy), Poland's economy is being fuelled by growing internal consumption, competitive exports and the inflow of EU funds. European Economy Experts believe that the Polish economy will grow by 5.5% in 2004 and 2005. Packaging and flat glass production in Poland is about 1,7 million tons per year. This year’s glass production is estimated to grow about 15% and should grow steadily about 8-10% in following years. Glass production levels in 2010 are estimated to be 55% higher than 2002 levels.

DFI’s nanotechnology multi-functional characteristics include: water and oil repellency (hydrophobic and oleophobic), impact and scratch resistance, protection against graffiti, dirt and stains, finger print protection, UV stability, additional electrical insulation, protection against calcium and sodium deposits and increased brilliance and lubricity. DFI’s nanocoating, a patented process, works at nanoscale levels to change the molecular composition of any silica-based surface. Diamon Fusion® provides a cross-linked, branched, and ‘capped’ coating along with a strong and durable covalent bond.
