You never get a second chance to make a first impression. What part of your store do customers see first? And the most? Your glass entrance doors. Of all the glass in storefronts and buildings, what takes the most abuse? Your glass entrance doors. With the daily deliveries, keys, rings and purses, graffiti, fingerprints and daily wear and tear, you will want to protect that first impression with Diamon-Fusion® protective coating. 

Diamon-Fusion® makes glass surfaces (ie. windows, storefront, glass walls, splashbacks, entrance doors) impact and scratch resistant and easier to clean, so your investment in Diamon-Fusion® can help your buildings perform better and maintain their original beauty longer.  Diamon-Fusion® also resists graffiti, be it paint, acid etching or “scratchitti”, so discourages taggers from tarnishing that first impression and scaring customers away.

Materials We Improve


As a multi-billion dollar athletic apparel manufacturer discovered, no matter how hard your maintenance team tries, it can be impossible to remove some stains from building glass. Or so they thought.

DFI’s proprietary Restoration products changed their opinion and Diamon-Fusion® ensured that restoration work didn’t have to be redone again and again. Better yet, DFI’s Restoration services saved this manufacturer and its shareholders hundreds of thousands of dollars by not having to replace the thousands of square feet of glass on their campus.

Had that manufacturer not discovered Diamon-Fusion® and DFI’s Restoration services, they likely would have replaced those thousands of square feet of glass which would have contributed to our choking landfills. And that manufacturer is now even greener because Diamon-Fusion reduces required cleanings, conserving water and eliminating the cleaning chemicals that would be washed into our streams, lakes and oceans.

Diamon-Fusion International Protective Coating Can Contribute to LEED Points

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.

It’s great that Diamon-Fusion® and DFI’s Restoration products and services make buildings greener, but these days everybody’s looking for ways to reduce costs. Diamon-Fusion accomplishes that as well by reducing the number of required cleaning cycles by up to 70%. If you’re a building owner, that means one less time the window cleaners need to be paid. If you’re a window cleaner, that means that when you do clean, the job will go much faster and the windows will be even cleaner. It doesn’t get much better that a quicker, cheaper, better job.

“At first I had my doubts, but then I saw Diamon-Fusion’s exceptional performance overtime, and I realized it was the real deal. Diamon-Fusion® protective coating is amazing and I believe there is immense potential for commercial building applications.

"I am very impressed with DFI and looking to incorporate more Diamon-Fusion coating projects across the campus... I have cut my window cleaning by 50% and saved $12,000-$14,000 per year since Diamon-Fusion was applied to our windows."

- Brian Worley, Director of Facilities & Campus Services,  Claremont McKenna College
Claremont, California (USA)

 

“We requested Diamon-Fusion® to be applied to the newly constructed GLASSource corporate headquarters in an effort to reduce maintenance costs, protect our glass entrance doors from scratching and guard against staining from building material leaching. By applying Diamon-Fusion®, we are ensuring the optimization of our high-performance glass and affirming our building’s windows will look beautiful for years to come.”

– Jim Arnold, President, GLASSource

“I have been in the window cleaning business for nearly 20 years and Diamon-Fusion® protective coating is the best product that I have come across.

– Mike Long, Owner of Clean Services Northwest Inc.
Portland, Oregon (USA)

"I was impressed with DFI's ability to restore several high-profile windows at the West Marine HQ, which had been badly water damaged from concrete leaching. After they treated the glass with Diamon-Fusion®, the windows looked good as new and are now very easy to clean."

 

- Erick Taylor, PacCom Management Supervisor at West Marine Headquarter
Watsonville, California (USA)

"I loved the way Diamon-Fusion® performed on the windows, showers, and tile and granite at my home so much that I had DFI apply it to the window of my dealership and my courtesy shuttle vehicles."

- Steve John, Tournament Director of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and (Previous) Owner of Ocean Honda
Santa Cruz, California (USA)

"The Academy’s experience with DFI and its product has been very positive. The end product is everything I was told it would be resulting in lower labor and material costs. My custodians spend less time wiping sticky fingerprints from the glass using only a microfiber cloth and no chemicals. The feedback from the custodians has been positive too; ‘I don’t know what you did to the glass’ one of them said to me, ‘but we like it.’"
