Diamon-Fusion International, Inc., global developer and exclusive licensor of patented hydrophobic nanotechnologies, has announced that, along with its partner, New York Poly Steel, it has secured a bid for a large-scale coating project for the original Tiffany & Co. building at 15 Union Square Street in New York City. The glass fabricators, Saint-Gobain Glass of France, were recently honoured as recipients of the 2010 Crystal Achievement Awards for this year“s Most Innovative Commercial Retrofit Project. The project will utilize the award-winning Diamon-Fusion coating, on more than 700 different-sized insulating glass units, to protect the glass from harmful environmental elements, while helping to reduce the maintenance of the glass over time. Through DFI“s patented nano-coating process, the chemical treatment creates a water repellent effect which enables ease of cleaning and protection against scratches, abrasion, and environmental elements, therefore considerably reducing the costs of maintenance to the faade. The Diamon-Fusion nano-coating is optically clear, and does not affect the natural reflection of the glass exterior. Every piece of glass on the building is a unique size to fit a unique aperture in the faade, creating a distinctive challenge in maintaining the appearance of the glass units over time, stated Carl Christ, Director of On-Site Services for Diamon-Fusion International. By treating the glass faade with Diamon-Fusion coating, we are reducing the need for cleaning and protecting the glass from harsh elements. This is one of several hi-end architectural projects DFI has worked on over the past year, and we are pleased to see the word is spreading among the leading fabricators and architects alike, about the value-added benefits of utilizing Diamon-Fusion coating on these exceptional properties. We are very excited to begin this partnership with Diamon-Fusion International with a historic and iconic property such as 15 Union Square West, explained Chris Pearson, Owner of New York Poly Steel. We see an enormous potential for the Diamon-Fusion coating to address the needs of architects, building owners, and property managers within the Tri-State market and look forward to working with DFI again many times in the future. Another 2010 Crystal Achievement Award winner, the platinum LEED-rated California Academy of Sciences Museum in San Francisco, California, US, partnered with DFI in 2009 to fashion DFI“s flagship Diamon-Fusion nano-coating on all glass doorways for the piazza and the front and back entrances of the building. The Academy chose Diamon-Fusion to reduce both the effort needed and the cleaning chemicals typically employed to clean these high-traffic doorways. In addition, Diamon-Fusion“s scratch-resistant properties will extend the life of these doors that are touched by thousands of visitors daily. The Academy application, along with several other high-profile commercial projects, prompted DFI to develop of a suite of products and services to help commercial property owners and developers, on a global basis, keep their buildings beautified, while reducing harmful chemical usage and the effort needed.
