High-speed and fully automated, the FuseCube really is a game changer for glass fabricators. The machine streamlines the application of Diamon-Fusion easy clean coating, through a process unique only to the FuseCube. It is a proprietary chemical vapor deposition that fuses Diamon-Fusion onto the glass, which independent tests have shown outperforms other coatings in terms of durability and the amount of coating needed per sq. ft.
