Directa Plus, a producer and supplier of graphene-based products for use in consumer and industrial markets, has announced it has received a further order from Alfredo Grassi. Over a year ago, in June 2017, Directa Plus and Grassi teamed up to develop graphene-enhanced clothing, workwear, uniforms and other textile products.
This follow-up order is worth an initial €0.70 million to supply high performance technical textiles with Graphene Plus (G+). It is anticipated that this order will be delivered in the current financial year. The Board believes this order represents the largest amount of textile material to be treated with graphene nanoplatelets by any company in the world to date.
Directa Plus has received this new order from Grassi following Grassi’s successful public tender to provide workwear incorporating G+ to an Italian government agency. This is the second such tender to be won by Grassi, having already supplied G+-enhanced workwear to an Italian state-owned company.
Directa Plus and Grassi continue to work together to develop and market new product lines and the Board remains excited about the future opportunities that this partnership could bring.
