GLASS PROJECT DETAILS.

The Problem.

Over time (nearly two decades), the exterior glass at this $35 billion manufacturing apparel company became extremely damaged due to concrete leaching, acid rain and other environmental pollutants.

The Solution.

After several attempts to rectify the problem, DFI was hired to restore and apply Diamon-Fusion protective coating to the damaged glass, in lieu of an extremely costly replacement. Diamon-Fusion’s patented technology chemically bonds to the surface of the glass, creating a high-performing protective barrier that protects against water stains, etching and exposure from other environmental contaminants.

The Outcome.

The glass was successfully restored to like-new appearance and protected to retain better durability and resilience. In fact, the restored and treated glass looked so good the client contracted DFI to perform restoration services on several other buildings throughout the campus, as well as an off-site jet hangar.

To date, Diamon-Fusion has been applied to more than 80,000 square feet of glass on the campus.

Saved on glass replacement costs

When applied to exterior glazing, Diamon-Fusion protects against hard water stains, concrete leaching and much more. As a result, glass replacement projects are avoided, saving thousands of dollars.

Enhanced beauty and clarity

Diamon-Fusion is 100% optically clear, UV resistant (won’t break down in sunlight) and transforms ordinary glass into extraordinary glass by adding more surface brilliance.

Protected from future etching

By filling in the microscopic peaks and valleys of the glass surface, water, dirt and other environmental contaminants cannot embed themselves in the glass, protecting it from future staining and etching.

Less frequent and easier cleanings

Similar in functionality to a non-stick cooking pan, Diamon-Fusion treated glazing repels sprinkler water, dirt and other outside contaminants, resulting in easier and less frequent cleanings.
