Diamon-Fusion International (DFI) announced, today, their patented protective glass coating, Diamon-Fusion, underwent a series of compatibility and adhesion tests performed by Sika. The test results showcased there was no adverse reaction to Sika sealants when testing both the Diamon-Fusion hand application and vapor application process.
First Sika performed an adhesion test using both Diamon-Fusion hand applied product and vapor application. The test demonstrated that with just an IPA wipe on the bonding area, all Sikasil® products tested gave 100% cohesive results. There was no discoloration, delamination, or change of the Diamon-Fusion in any way observed. The Diamon-Fusion vapor test produced the same results; with just an IPA wipe on the bonding area, all Sikasil® products tested gave 100% cohesive results. There was no discoloration, delamination, or change of the Diamon-Fusion in any way observed.
Sika then performed a capability test using both Diamon-Fusion hand applied product and vapor application. This test was performed according to CQP 593 - compatibility between adhesives and insulating glass edge seals after climatic cycling of IG units. Based on the test standards described in the modified CQP 593-3, there were no observed signs of negative influences on the Sikasil® IG-25, the Sikasil® IG-25 HM Plus, or the PIB primary sealant, when used with Diamon-Fusion.
“We have known Diamon-Fusion protective coating has been compatible with IG units and multiple sealants for years now. However, it is great to see the positive results from Sika, a well-respected global leader in specialty chemicals for construction, industrial, and automotive markets.” – Syndi Sim, VP of Marketing and Business Development.
