Directa Plus, a leading producer and supplier of graphene-based products for use in consumer and industrial markets, has completed the first phase of a study to better understand the possible uses of graphene membranes in the textiles sector. In February, the company was awarded a grant by Lombardy regional government to carry out further research into graphene for textiles and fashion.
The first phase involved identifying the characterisation of graphene membranes required to obtain the best performance. Now, the company says it is working on the second phase, which aims to develop new applications and better performing products, as well as considering potential strategic partnerships in this field.
Innovation in Textiles spoke to Giulio Cesareo, Chief Executive Officer of Directa Plus, about the future of graphene based products, like the company’s G+ membranes, in textile applications and the advantages they can offer to the market.
