Keeping Surfaces the Way the Architect, Builder and Owner Envisioned
Architects spend valuable time determining what kind of glass they and their customers need to produce the desired effect. But what happens when that glass gets dirty? Does that dirty glass still satisfy those needs?
Drive through any commercial area and you’ll see “dirty” glass. Most often you see drip marks or obvious areas on the windows where water had run across the glass, such as hard water stains caused by sprinklers. These are noticeable because the rainwater often picks up minerals or other contaminants from the surfaces surrounding the windows – the concrete of the building, the silicone in the window mounting, the pollution in the air, and many other sources – and deposits them on the glass marring the look and destroying the desired effect.
Diamon-Fusion International is the first hydrophobic protective coating company to have its products specifically reviewed for compliance in association with USGBC's LEED rating system to confirm how they can contribute in the following categories: Sustainable Sites, Energy and Atmosphere, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Materials and Resources.
