Editor’s Note: A Canadian company is making advances in new coating technology. Prelco, located in Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec, has installed a Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) chamber used to apply a newly licensed nano-technology coating called Nano-Fusion. The licensed CVD chamber built by the company is the first of its kind in Canada and is able to apply coatings to monolithic glass and IG units up to 96 by 196 inches (2438mm by 4978mm) in size.
