Post Time:Jan 07,2011Classify:Industry NewsView:78

Diamon-Fusion International Inc., Irvine, Calif., along with its partner, New York Poly Steel, New York, completed the large-scale coating project for the original Tiffany & Co. building at 15 Union Square St.,in New York City, as well as the adjacent HSBC Bank and Skechers glass storefronts, according to a Jan. 6 release.The project features 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. The patented nano-coating process 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 facade. The nano-coating is optically clear, and does not affect the natural reflection of the glass exterior. The client also requested additional work, outside the scope of the original bid, to treat a skylight, a translucent awning and a large area of flash-finish granite.

As a result of this project, DFI and New York Poly Steel have secured additional interest and bids for other high-profile architectural projects in the Northeast region. This particular application, along with several other high-profile commercial projects, has raised awareness of the benefits of DFI’s 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.

“This was a truly magnificent project aimed at reducing the need for cleaning and protecting the glass from harsh elements on this architectural icon," said Carl Christ, director of on-site services, Diamon-Fusion International, in the release. "We are pleased the clients was so satisfied with the results, it actually created a larger scope of work for the project, post bid. This is one of several hi-end architectural projects DFI has worked on over the past year, and it is nice 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.”

“It was a great experience, partnering with Diamon-Fusion International on a historic and iconic property such as 15 Union Square West,” said Chris Pearson, owner of New York Poly Steel, in the release. “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.
