Directa Plus has signed an agreement with Comerio Ercole to pursue joint research and development projects using the company's G+ graphene technology.

Comerio is an Italian engineering and manufacturing company founded in 1885, that specializes in rubber and composite material processing.

The partners would use Comerio's own R&D laboratory, with mixing and calendering machinery, to explore prototype processes using polymers and elastomers that could be useful for producing and improving compounds containing G+.
