Diamon Fusion® International, Inc. (DFI), global developer and exclusive supplier of the Diamon Fusion® patented hydrophobic technology, is now providing to all DFI's licensees, on a worldwide basis, its new version of the Diamon Fusion® coating: widely considered as a break-through scientific development, this is a NEW improvement to its original award-winning process. The characteristics of this new development have been reported by DFI's R&D scientists as significant and very relevant in the area of abrasion resistance and overall expanded durability.
Don Hayden, PhD, DFI's Chief Scientist and Inventor, stated: "After more than 10 years of working on R&D in hydrophobicity, I can comfortably say that this new development has a significant merit and provides an overall expanded durability in chemical terms; Diamon Fusion® not only repels water (hydrophobic), providing an easy-to-clean coating to all silica-based surfaces, but also offers oil repellency — oleophobic- due to Diamon Fusion®'s unique molecular composition".
Adam Zax, President & CEO of DFI, reported: "Although the original objective of this improvement was focused on surfaces that suffer accelerated degradation due to harsh weathering conditions, we now recognize it will provide added benefits to a multiplicity of markets including increasing durability on shower doors and other interior applications; we are very pleased with the increased stability and chemical strength of our new development and are confident our continual improvements will offer the market place more distinctions to educate the public on the vast differences between our technology and other products".
DFI's enhanced hydrophobic technology provides a unique molecular change in the treated surface, creating acovalent bond, the strongest possible bond, in chemical terms, that a hydrophobic coating can furnish (in a covalent bond, the electrons are shared by the glass and the coating itself, thus the coating becomes part of the glass). Diamon Fusion®'s covalent bond provides expanded durability and additional properties such as scratch and impact resistance, added brilliance and lubricity, additional electrical insulation and capability of receiving Invisible Art Glass™, among other significant characteristics.
