ZEN Graphene Solutions has announced that it has signed a binding letter of intent (LOI) with Trebor Rx Corp. (Trebor), a Canadian personal protective equipment mask manufacturer with an initial production facility.
This LOI includes the initial purchase of ZEN’s patent pending graphene-based viricidal coating for a minimum of 100 million masks/filters. This initial minimum order is for the first year and is subject to Health Canada approvals.
Trebor has a new standard of N95 mask, the patent pending Pro+ Respirator Mask (Pro+). The Pro+ mask, combined with ZEN’s viricidal coating, will aim to set a new standard of protection while solving problems of costs, comfort, and medical waste.
The Pro+ is both reusable and 99% recyclable. Trebor will also be offering a 3-ply surgical mask with ZEN’s proven viricidal protection.
Greg Fenton, ZEN’s Chief Strategy Officer commented, “This is a historic day for ZEN. The signing of this significant commercial agreement is a watershed moment for our organization. Moreover, it is an honour for ZEN to partner with a Canadian company like Trebor and develop a 100% Canadian solution in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The innovation of the Trebor Pro+ Respirator Mask will set a new standard in the mask industry and, combined with our viricidal coating, will bring a new level of safety for our front-line workers. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with George and Brenda throughout this process, as Trebor and ZEN share a similar philosophy in terms of innovation and positioning our respective firms in both the Canadian and global markets.”
