Diamon-Fusion International (DFI) announced it is the first hydrophobic protective coating company to have its products specifically reviewed for compliance in association with USGBC’s LEED rating system.

The process is used to confirm how they can contribute in the categories of sustainable sites, energy and atmosphere, indoor environmental quality, and materials and resources.“We are thrilled to be the first hydrophobic protective coating manufacturer reviewed for our LEED contributions,” says Syndi Sim, director of marketing. “Our experience working with LEED projects such as the double Platinum certified California Academy of Sciences has proven to us that this review is critical to designers and architects.We will be adding this immediately to our industry-leading effort to educate architects and designers about the benefits and cost-savings a best-in-class hydrophobic coating can deliver for their clients.”

GreenCE Inc., a USGBC Education Partner which helps manufacturers develop tools to articulate the environmental, human health, and financial benefits of their products, completed the review process.

“As a company concerned with environmental impact, we strive to create coatings which leave the planet in a better position for future generations,” says Russell Slaybaugh, vice president and general manager of DFI. “Our coatings are designed to eliminate the use of harsh chemicals that eventually spill into our waterways, while making surfaces easier to clean, requiring less water in the process. For commercial buildings, our coatings require less cleaning, which in turn requires less water and chemicals, reducing the building owner’s costs and impact on the environment.”
