Directa Plus, a producer and supplier of graphene-based products for use in consumer and industrial markets, has teamed up with Eurojersey, an Italian producer of technical fabrics under its Sensitive Fabrics brand, to produce a range of fabrics containing the company’s graphene-based products. The new line will focus on high-performance technical fabrics targeting sportswear and underwear sectors.
The companies are conducting joint R&D to further develop the prototype textiles into product samples that will be marketed to the customers of Directa Plus and Eurojersey. The lamination of Sensitive Fabrics with Grafytherm functional membranes containing G+, distributed exclusively by Directa Textile Solutions, reportedly produces a technologically advanced fabric with unique thermal features: the presence of G+ graphene, which is highly thermally conductive, allows a homogeneous distribution of the heat produced by the human body in cold weather and a heat dispersion effect in hot weather.
In January 2016, Directa Plus and Colmar were set to launch a line of graphene-enhanced sportswear; In February 2017, Directa Plus and Colmar launched a second collection of graphene-enhanced ski jackets.
