- Results Show a 32% Increase in Adhesion for glass hinges, clamps & brackets on Glass Treated with DFI Products.
- Test Validates Long-Held Understanding of DFI Coating Benefits vs. Untreated Glass.
IRVINE, Calif., January 17, 2013– Diamon-Fusion International, Inc. (DFI), global developer and exclusive licensor of patented hydrophobic nanotechnologies, announced today independent test results confirm, glass treated with DFI products experienced increased adhesion of glass hinges, clamps & brackets. The test results show improvement of up to 32% vs. untreated glass. These independent results prove a long-held DFI understanding that DFI treated surfaces actually create a stronger bond with silicon, than untreated surfaces and are among the best quality in the marketplace, providing value-added features to glass manufacturers beyond the low maintenance and scratch/impact resistance benefits. In the tests, a single glass hinges, clamps & bracket was glued on to samples treated with DFI coatings, as well as an untreated piece for a control. While the untreated bracket required 176 pounds to pull the hanger off the glass, DFI’s most efficient and cost-effective coating method required 230 pounds or 32% more than the untreated surface and much greater than any manufacturer would approve. For manufacturers and installers who experience adhesion issues, the independent labs results show drastically improved weight loads when mounted on glass treated with a DFI coating.
