SAN CLEMENTE, CALIF.Thursday, March 29, 2007

– (BUSINESS WIRE) - Diamon Fusion® International, Inc. (DFI Nanotechnology), global developer and exclusive licensor of the Diamon Fusion® patented hydrophobic nanotechnology, announced its expansion into the Alaskan market with the signing of a license (in Alaska) with NexGen LLC to further expand its northern exposure in the US market, granting DFI’s newest Licensee (NexGen) certain exclusive rights within the State of Alaska.

The recent license agreement signed with NexGen LLC, a privately-held company of very innovative and entrepreneurial spirit, made an immediate impact in the Alaskan territory by bringing Diamon Fusion® nano-coating to a NEW market arena: rental cars. Alaska Rent A Car, Inc., dba Avis Rent A Car, has already signed up to provide its fleet of cars with Diamon Fusion® to add value to its customers by offering safer driving conditions. Established in 1955, the locally owned, and internationally recognized, Avis agency was renting cars before Alaska became a state. NexGen was formed “to offer Alaskans the acclaimed Diamon Fusion® ® surface treatment”, as claimed in NexGen’s recently launched website.

DFI’s flagship Diamon Fusion® patented nanocoating is being distributed to highly reputable companies on a global basis, including industry leaders DuPont, ALCOA, MOEN, Curvet (Italy), Cricursa (Spain), Prelco Group (Canada), Cristacurva (Mexico), among many others.

Koji Gailey, Business Partner of NexGen, who brokered the licensing of AVIS RENT A CAR Alaska, reported: “We are excited to become a member of the Diamon Fusion® family. The Diamon Fusion® coating is the perfect solution for the foul weather we face on a daily basis. We have already received an overwhelming response and are proud to offer such innovative nanotechnology here in Alaska.”

Gary Zimmerman, General Manager of AVIS Alaska, commented: “We are always looking to improve driver’s safety and the overall driving experience for our customers. Diamon Fusion® nano-coating certainly addresses this core aspect for us.”

Bruce Ticknor, DFI’s Director of New Market Development, stated: “Alaska is a natural market for Diamon Fusion®; the application of our patented nano-coating to AVIS cars provides great safety features (to the drivers) under such adverse weather conditions by adding visibility and ease of ice removal, among other properties.” 

DFI Nanotechnology multi-functional characteristics include: water and oil repellency (hydrophobic and oleophobic), impact and scratch resistance, protection against graffiti, dirt and stains, finger print protection, UV stability, additional electrical insulation, protection against calcium and sodium deposits and increased brilliance and lubricity. DFI’s nanocoating works at nanoscale levels to change the molecular composition of any silica-based surface. Diamon Fusion® provides, in chemical terms, a ‘cross-linked’, ‘branched’ and ‘capped’ optically clear nano-film along with a strong and durable covalent bond.
