AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- IAS, a leading provider of F&I aftermarket programs to automobile dealerships, today announced a formal alliance with Crystal Fusion Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of windshield protection technologies.

Crystal Fusion is an aftermarket product that helps keep vehicle windshields cleaner and stronger while significantly improving hazards associated with night glare and windshield chips.  Crystal Fusion may also increase driver reaction time in inclement weather because of a drastic improvement to overall visibility.

"Crystal Fusion is a perfect addition to the IAS portfolio.  It adds substantial value to the vehicle sale while providing the car buyer with a tangible benefit," said Ray Doran, Founder and CEO of Crystal Fusion Technologies, Inc.  "IAS had all the components in place to expand distribution of Crystal Fusion and we took particular note of their superior reputation for administration and claims."

Under the alliance, IAS has chosen Crystal Fusion exclusively as part of their Windshield Repair or Replacement warranty program offerings.  They currently offer a 5 year limited repair or replacement warranty and a general maintenance program.  Product availability differs by state.

"Over the course of 2010, we have seen a robust increase in sales for our windshield repair and replacement warranty programs throughout the United States," said Bob Corbin, President and CEO of IAS.  "Adding Crystal Fusion to our product offerings made sense for IAS because it's a quality product that will protect our customers as well as have a residual effect on a decrease in claims.  Additionally, this opens up a new product for IAS' dynamic reinsurance program."

Crystal Fusion's three step process is simple to install and can take less than ten minutes from start to the delivery of a vehicle.  The product is available on both new and used vehicles.
