Diamon-Fusion International (DFI) has announced that Trulite Canada (Montreal) has added the FuseCube™ Express to their line of fabrication capabilities.
The protective glass coating machine streamlines the application of Diamon-Fusion® glass treatment onto both sides of the surface, allowing Trulite Canada to offer easy-to-clean, low-maintenance benefits to their line of glass railing and architectural systems.
Diamon-Fusion® application through the FuseCube™ Express is done via a proprietary chemical vapour deposition (CVD) process that chemically bonds (fuses) to the surface. The result is an ultra-thin barrier that repels water, helps prevent staining, and significantly cuts cleaning time. The coating is also UV-resistant (won’t breakdown in sunlight) and backed with a lifetime warranty on all residential surfaces and a 15-year warranty on all commercial surfaces.
With over 26 fabrication facilities throughout the United States, Trulite is one of North America’s largest architectural glass and aluminium fabricators and distributors. Adding Diamon-Fusion® glass treatment to their line of glass products gives Trulite Canada the opportunity to provide customers with easy-to-clean glass features, backed by an industry-leading warranty.
Dominic Leclerc, General Director, Trulite Canada, said, “We partnered with DFI to provide our customers with Diamon-Fusion®, a top-quality, protective glass coating, while having it machine-applied. We have been interested in the capabilities and benefits of the FuseCube™ Express machine for years now, and the time was right to move ahead. We look forward to a long-term partnership with DFI.”
Syndi Sim, VP of Marketing and Business Development, Diamon-Fusion International, said, “We are excited to partner with Dominic Leclerc and his team at Trulite on their new product offering. By adding the FuseCube™ Express, Trulite Canada will be able to deliver newly upgraded glass with machine-applied Diamon-Fusion® protective coating at faster turnaround times.”

A multi-million dollar investment in Selkirk, Man. is one step closer to becoming reality.
The City of Selkirk announced Wednesday that it had entered into an option to purchase agreement with Canadian Premium Sand Inc. that would allow the company to purchase land in the city to build a patterned solar glass manufacturing plant.
“We’re so excited about this opportunity here,” said Duane Nicol, Selkirk’s chief administrative officer. “This puts Selkirk on the map in terms of the green economy.
“We know that solar panels are a growth industry in the world, there’s a growing demand for providing that product as we transition away from fossil fuel-based electricity to renewable based electricity.”
The plant, when approved, will be located off Highway 9 in the city’s old industrial park, on 121 acres of land. According to a news release, the plant represents a $400 million investment in Selkirk.
“It’s the largest industrial investment in our community in over 100 years,” Nicol said.
Nicol added, once finished, the plant will provide 300 jobs in the community, and he said there will be additional economic spinoffs.
“All the support industries and customers of that product, as well as all the supports to the people that need to work in the transportation and all of those things that will benefit,” he said. “It’s a huge opportunity for the City of Selkirk. It’s also a great benefit for the people of Manitoba because these are, you know, these are jobs and spin off for the entire province.”
Before the agreement can be finalized, Canadian Premium Sand must receive an environmental licence from the Manitoba government.
If approved, construction of the plant is expected to take place in 2023.
