Like most advanced societies, Korean people are following the Well-Being Trend thus customers tend to need a genuine glass with near-perfect surface to their full optical and spiritual satisfaction. I trust that this kind of irresistible human necessity will create a huge market for DFI in Korea and most of the Asian market.
DFIs presence in ISRAEL responds to DFIs core R&D-based philosophy since Israel is the worlds leading country in investment per capita related to R&D and provides a technologically advanced market economy. DFI is currently working in a wide range of projects in the Middle East and Europe that include both R&D and licensing. DFI has been granted PATENTS (on the Diamon-Fusion® hydrophobic nano-coating) in both Israel and Korea. The list of countries, where DFI has issued patents, also includes: USA, Canada, China, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, among the main countries.
DFIs recently-designated Regional Sales Manager in MEXICO, Alejandro Alvarez, commented on DFIs new global outlook: Our Mexico City- based office will serve not only to centralize DFIs operations in Mexico but also to expand in Central America as well; we have multiple market segments in Mexico beyond Architectural Glass that we havent even touched yet; there are many other avenues to pursue additional revenues.
Guillermo Seta, Vice President and Executive Director of DFI Global Operations, added: "The expansion of global markets is key to our strategic goals in 2006; our maturing nanoscience-based R&D projects will undoubtedly drive another year of innovation and increased market positioning.
DFI Nanotechnology multi-functional characteristics include: water and oil repellency (hydrophobic and oleophobic,), impact and scratch resistance, protection against graffiti, dirt and stains, finger print protection, UV stability, additional electrical insulation, protection against calcium and sodium deposits and increased brilliance and lubricity. DFIs nanocoating works at nanoscale levels to change the molecular composition of any silica-based surface. Diamon-Fusion® provides, in chemical terms, a cross-linked, branched and capped optically clear nano-film along with a strong and durable covalent bond.
