Leading Brazilian sports and activewear manufacturer BiaBrazil has announced a commercial agreement with Versarien, an advanced engineering materials group, which will see the integration of Versarien’s Graphene-Wear technology into a new range of women's and men’s activewear garments. They have been working together for the past 16 months, and have conducted extensive trials with local partners in Brazil.

The Versarien Graphene-Wear formula will enable wearers to experience enhanced thermal transmittance, increased moisture management and drying rate of the garments. The garments will also have the Graphene-Wear trademark applied.  

“As an innovative sports and activewear brand, we provide clothing ranges that provide our wearers with garments that not only help them in their sports performance but also increase their self-confidence. Working with the Versarien team, we have designed a next-generation clothing range. We are excited to see the next stage of our partnership as we look to production, and delivery of our range to market,” Beatriz Dockhorn, founder and CEO BiaBrazil, said.

In partnership with University of Gloucestershire, Versarien has subjected this new technology to extensive wearer trials. Further, the Graphene-Wear ink formula has been tested to international standards, resulting in the publication of a white paper, all aimed at giving partners such as BiaBrazil great confidence in this innovation.

“We are hugely excited to be in partnership with BiaBrazil. Through our partnership we will be able to create garments that have been designed with comfort, style, and design in mind, whilst also maintaining high levels of quality and performance with our Graphene-Wear technology,” added Neill Ricketts, CEO Versarien plc.

It is anticipated the garments will be available for sale in Q1 2023 and will be available to buy in the UK, along with existing retailers worldwide.
