What products do you have?
A: We have four main products and solutions:
Diamond Fusion easyClean™ – our flagship product and the world’s only patented system. It is 2 incredibly thin layers, with layer one creating a permanent barrier to glass damage and layer two then capping that to give you that easy cleaning that we all want. Once your application is registered, this has a lifetime warranty and is an unbeatable application for all silica based surfaces, such as showers, splash-backs, all glass balustrades and exterior glass surfaces.
Clear-Fusion PRO™ – Simply the best bang for your buck single layer product available anywhere. A little more care is involved when compared to Diamond Fusion eayClean, but it is more cost-effective. It comes with a 10-year warranty, once registered, and is focused mainly on exterior glass balustrades and exterior glass surfaces, however, is also excellent for shower glass.
Clear-Fusion V™– a great value single layer product. This comes with a 1 to 3 year lifespan and is focused mainly on interior glass balustrades and exterior glazing (such as your house windows) to keep the environment dirt off them.
Clear Fusion DIY™ – a range of great DIY Nanotechnology products aimed at specific surfaces and applications from in the home to one the water.
What surfaces do your products work on?
A: DFI nanotechnology (Diamond Fusion easyClean / Clear-FusionPRO / Clear-FusionV) chemically reacts with all silica-based surfaces such as glass, ceramic tile, and porcelain, as well as other products that contain silica. We also have a range of DIY kits that have products for acrylic and stainless steel also.
Where in the world is your product sold?
A: Most of our products are manufactured in California, USA, by DFI. These products have been licensed throughout the world: United States, Mexico, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Central and South America. These are truly global products and millions of consumers use and continue to use their treated surfaces.
Our cleaning product, Restore, is developed, and made in NZ, so suits our unique conditions and water supply.
What is nanotechnology and are your product safe?
A: Nanoscale technologies are the development and use of devices that have a size of only a few nanometers. The prefix “nano” means ten to the minus ninth power, or one billionth. Nanotechnology is measured at the atomic, molecular or macromolecular levels, in the length scale of approximately 1 – 100 nanometer range.
All of our products are environmentally safe, they will not harm you or wear off and detrimentally effect the environment. There are some products on the market in NZ that are either not allowed to be sold in some overseas markets or are/have been investigated for toxicity and/or environmental damage.
Once treated with Diamond Fusion will I still need to clean the treated surfaces?
A: Yes you will. Unfortunatly there is no such thing as a no clean surface. The application of a glass protection product REDUCES cleaning time but it does not eliminate it entirely. Diamond Fusion easyClean™ and Clear Fusion are similar to the development of Teflon®* for cooking pans. While you can cook food in uncoated pans, it is so much easier to clean if you cook with Teflon®* coated pans. While you must still maintain your Diamond Fusion or Clear Fusion coated surface, the time and effort required is significantly reduced.
* Teflon® is a registered trademark of E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Company.
How long does it take?
A: We can be in and out within an hour for a new shower.
Once we leave, you can use the shower immediately as our products have no cure or drying time – which is a huge bonus when all you really want to do is use that new shower!
Also since our products have no curing or drying time it doesn’t matter what else is happening on site, the surface will not pick up dust from the work site, or get a rub mark from the plumber fitting off the shower after us.
If we are renovating your shower glass, the full job CAN take 2 or 3 hrs – sometimes longer – this just depends on how long the mineral baddies take to be coaxed out of the glass.
Note, Restoration is firstly priced based on level of marking and products required to remove the staining, and as below, not just time onsite.
The restoration process is a difficult process, it is hard on the operator, and equipment, every Restoration contains an allowance for operator recovery, consumables, and equipment maintenance.
Is it possible to renovate/restore and treat mineral stained older shower glass?
A: Absolutely, we can renovate most used shower glass using our proprietary glass cleaning products and mineral stain removers.
Most showers will Restore to 90-95% of new – but not all will be successful, it just depends on how bad the staining is, and what has been used on the shower previously. Our trained applicators will usually know once onsite if the glass is able to be cleaned. If the glass will not clean to the standard expected we will talk to you as soon as possible and discuss if you wish to proceed.
Is there a warranty provided with your products?
A: Yes. But far more important than a warranty is the unbeatable lifespans of our products, every application comes with an automatic 1 year warranty, however, Simply register your glass using the Unique number that will be provided on your instruction card or sticker – that will be on the glass – to extend your warranty to the appropriate level, then your confirmation will then be emailed to you.
Warranties do vary, depending on the product and application, and once registered, range from:
- Diamond Fusion easyClean is the worlds only permanent protection and can be extended to the market leading “Lifetime” warranty on glass.
- Clear-Fusion PRO’s best performance for the price level “10 year” warranty on glass.
- Clear-Fusion V’s limited “3 year” warranty.
We also have an “after-care programme” that you will then be part of which offers on-going contact should you have any questions, plus some great deals on our After-Care-Gear should you need it.
note – these warranties only apply to approved agent applied coatings – refer Shop for DIY details.
What does contact angle mean?
- We have the world’s best contact angle at 101 degrees – higher contact angles result in surfaces being more repellent to water and other substances, showing reduced cleaning and maintenance – a win for our customers!
- We have the world’s best sliding angle at 13.1 degrees – the lower sliding angle indicates a greater degree of surface slipperiness, which results in water running from the surface, thereby improving clean-ability and clarity.
Do different surfaces require different cleaning?
A: We do have many different ways of caring for a surface, if you have specific needs, just talk to us, there is usually a solution.
Maintenance and care vary substantially according to the type of application (treated surface type and location/exposure) and the abrasion to which the treated material is exposed to. Abrasion means any mechanical (such as windshield wiper on a Vehicle, or Boat) or non-mechanical force (such as wind or dust) affecting the treated product. Therefore, an exterior architectural glass structure exposed to all kinds of weather conditions will require a much different maintenance and care than shower glass, or Tiles.
When is the best time to get glass protected?
- Showers: when they are installed, we can be onsite and out within an hour, but its possible at any time.
- Balustrades: Usually it is easiest to apply once installed – consideration of access to them onsite is a big decider on where these are treated, if high, scaffold may be needed.
- Exterior glass: as above with Balustrades.
