Key Textile Patent Grant

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 has been granted an Italian patent for its Planar Thermal Circuit(R) invention. The patent, covers the use of the G+(R) graphene circuit applied onto fabrics of any type and which is able to absorb body heat and move it from the hottest to the coldest point of the circuit, providing a significantly increased sense of comfort to the wearer or user.

The patent covers the main features of the circuit which make it effective: planar interconnection, typical width dimension and coverage. Following the grant by the Italian Patent Office, a European Union patent application has already been filed under the Patent Cooperation Treaty.

The Company's Planar Thermal Circuit(R) is thermally conductive, electrically conductive and antibacterial. In common with all Directa Plus's products, it is produced sustainably using no chemicals and is hypo-allergenic and non-toxic.

Commenting, Giulio Cesareo, Founder and CEO of Directa Plus, said: "The grant of a patent for our Planar Thermal Circuit(R) is a key step towards exploiting the very high potential of this invention. It can be exploited in every segment of textile, from apparel, including sportswear, workwear and luxury wear, to upholstery, interior design and industrial applications."
