Gipave graphene asphalt trial in Kent

Directa Plus (AIM: DCTA), a leading producer and supplier of graphene nanoplatelets based products for use in consumer and industrial markets, announces that the Company supplied Gipave, the Company's proprietary asphalt supermodifier, for use in a road trial in Kent, United Kingdom starting this month

Directa is working in collaboration with its industrial partner Iterchimica and Kent County Council, to resurface an existing road on East Hill, Dartford.

This follows previously announced trials in Rome, Italy, and in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom, which showed that Gipave increases the lifespan and durability of road surfaces, through the addition of a G+ graphene super modifier.

Commenting, Giulio Cesareo, Founder and CEO of Directa Plus, said: "Directa's vision is to use graphene technology to enhance existing products, to provide better outcomes for end users. Gipave is an excellent example of the products Directa produces, it allows for stronger, more durable road surfaces, and is fully recyclable. The wide adoption of Gipave road surfaces will reduce the long term financial and environmental costs of road construction for drivers and local governments alike."
