White Bear Glass, a glass and design shop in the Twin Cities area, is partnering with Diamon-Fusion International to treat its shower and commercial glass with the company’s fully automated hydrophobic coating machine.

White Bear will incorporate this technology, featuring a low-maintenance, easy-to-clean coating, into its product design and appearances.

“The FuseCube is a homerun for us,” said Jeff Meyer, president of White Bear Glass. “Bringing this into our operation allows us to treat all types of glass sizes and styles, making our shower and bath enclosures even more popular, and in addition, provide architects, designers and homeowners many other glass possibilities that require or can benefit from a long-term protection option with an easy-to-clean surface.”

White Bear’s newly installed FuseCube streamlines the Diamon-Fusion coating via a chemical vapor deposition process. The coating is circulated throughout the chamber and fused onto both sides of the glass ensuring evenly coated glass. Diamon-Fusion chemically bonds with the silica in glass, creating an ultra-thin, protective barrier with a variety of benefits including:

  • Reducing cleaning time and frequency of cleanings;
  • Eliminating the need for harsh chemical cleaners;
  • Protection against dirt, hard water stains and corrosion; and
  • Being highly resistant to UV, providing long-lasting stability.

The patented glass treatment also comes with a lifetime warranty and can be applied to a wide range of glass surfaces including acid etched glass, sandblasted glass, textured glass and much more.

“The family run team at White Bear Glass have been an absolute pleasure to work with. We look forward to our partnership and long-term efforts in differentiating their glass business,” said Syndi Sim, DFI’s vice president of marketing and business development.
