Directa Plus, a producer and supplier of graphene-based products for use in consumer and industrial markets, has entered into Joint Development Agreement (JDA) with Alfredo Grassi S.p.A., a leading manufacturer of customised protective clothing, workwear and uniforms for private and public organisations.
The signing of the JDA follows detailed testing of Directa Plus’ graphene by Alfredo Grassi to assess the potential benefits that could be delivered by incorporating Directa Plus’ graphene into its products. Under the terms of the JDA, the companies will seek to market a range of technical textiles and garments containing the Company’s graphene-based products to the customers of Alfredo Grassi.
“We are proud to be collaborating with Alfredo Grassi who have a successful track record of producing clothing that leverages their established heritage combined with the technological advances of their partners,” said Giulio Cesareo, CEO of Directa Plus.
“This agreement represents a further expansion of our textile offering as our Graphene Plus (G+) will be utilised to enhance the performance of workwear and protective wear for law enforcement and military forces, which we believe represents a significant market opportunity. We look forward to working together to develop and market new product lines, based on our shared commitment to quality, innovation and environmental-sustainability, and to bringing them to the market.”
