Inc. (DFI Nanotechnology), global developer and exclusive licensor of patented
hydrophobic nanotechnologies, announced today it was awarded the exclusive contract
to apply the Diamon-Fusion nano-coating to the NIKE building world headquarters
in Beaverton, Oregon near Portland. The first phase took place this month on
the John McEnroe Building facade along its exterior glass walls and windows.
An extensive restoration process on the existing concrete-leached glass was
completed utilizing DFI's proprietary restoration products prior to fashioning
the Diamon-Fusion nano-coating. The John McEnroe Building is only the first
building (at Nike's HQ Campus) to be treated with the Diamon-Fusion
low-maintenance nano-coating. The work for the entire project is being performed
by Santa Cruz, California-based DFI Licensee Central Coast Diamon-Fusion
and Window Cleaning.
The NIKE Corporation is a global marketer in over 160 countries providing athletic
footwear, apparel and equipment that is unrivaled in the world. Through suppliers,
shippers, retailers and other service providers, NIKE directly or indirectly
employs nearly one million people. The NIKE brand portfolio includes several
wholly owned subsidiaries; Converse Inc., NIKE Golf, Cole Haan Holdings, Inc.,
and Hurley International LLC. With world-famous celebrity endorsements such
as Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods, Roger Federer and Lance Armstrong to the top tagline
of the 20th century "Just Do It" NIKE continues to make history.
Through the DFI's patented nano-coating process, the chemical treatment
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 Diamon-Fusion nano-coating
is optically clear, and does not affect the natural reflection of the glass
Guillermo Seta, Corporate Vice President and Executive Director of DFI Global
Operations, commented: "We are pleased and honored to be working with
NIKE, one of the most highly recognizable corporations throughout the world.
It's a testament to the confidence we have created in the quality and innovative
technology we've been providing for over 10 years."
