Alfredo Grassi, manufacturer of customised protective clothing, workwear and uniforms, has entered into joint development agreement with Directa Plus, to develop graphene-enhanced workwear. 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 has a successful track record of producing clothing that leverages their established heritage combined with the technological advances of their partners," said Giulio Cesareo, chief executive officer 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."

The initial focus under the JDA will be on garments with linings printed with graphene plus combined with waterproof, breathable textiles. The presence of G+, which has been independently certified as non-toxic and non-cytotoxic, produces a technically-advanced fabric with unique properties.

"As a company that is continually looking for innovative materials, while paying attention to environmental sustainability, we have found an ideal partner in Directa Plus," added Roberto Grassi, CEO of Alfredo Grassi. "Together, we will seek to improve the level of comfort and protection offered by our products through the use of innovative fabrics made using graphene, and I am sure that we will continue to work on more projects together both in the workwear and the public administration sectors. I am convinced that the collaboration is a strategic milestone for us in terms of product innovation and also because we share the same corporate values, ??such as employee appreciation and recognition, attention to environmental issues and a common long-term vision on future markets."
