IRVINE, Calif., May 4, 2010- Diamon-Fusion International, Inc. (DFI Nanotechnology), global developer and exclusive licensor of patented hydrophobic nanotechnologies, announced today the exclusive application of its patented nano- coating product to a large-scale glass restoration project by one of the world’s most famous historical auto museums, the Nicolis Museum of Cars, Technology and Mechanics, a spectacular and ultra-modern container of culture and ideas in Villafranca near Verona, Italy.

Through collaboration with DFI’s strategic partner, AKTARUS GROUP and GRUPPO INDUSTRIALE TOSONI (GIT), Diamon-Fusion® has been specified to be fashioned at this project as a valuable low-maintenance, clean tech feature to reduce on-going cleaning costs. DFI’s eco-friendly nano-coating also eliminates the need for harsh chemicals thus creating a greener environment. The oversized, curved and flat glass panels are treated and restored with the patented Diamon-Fusion® nano-coating, creating a water repellent effect which enables ease of cleaning and protection against scratches, abrasions, and environmental elements.
The museum housing the collection by creator Luciano Nicolis provides an impressive architectural structure with free sections: the rooms can be modified freely to the functional needs of the museum exhibition. The large glass facades bring the right amount of light into the inner spaces of this modern building, while the articulation of the building and its orientation allows a continuous change of perspective during the approach and the possibility of having the front façade from different vantage points. All of the glass facades are being restored and treated with the innovative protective nano-coating through DFI. The museum hosts autmotive works of arts that include world's reknown makers such as Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Bugatti, Lancia, BMW, Benz, among others.
“The Nicolis Museum restoration project is one of several DFI has currently underway around the globe,” stated Guillermo Seta, executive director of DFI Global Operations. “World-wide, organizations and companies are seeing the benefits of this value-added coating feature to restore, maintain and protect these amazing architectural works of art. We are pleased to partner with these leaders in this innovative field aimed at protecting and restoring these architectural masterpieces.”
"This project symbolizes both the great benefit of adding Diamon-Fusion® as a key low-maintenance feature to the glass facades of such an extraordinary 'container of automotive culture', as well as the great collaboration we have with Gruppo Industrialle Tosoni, which certainly goes beyond this single project", said Paolo Spinelli, Managing Director of Aktarus Group.
