Directa Plus offers a wide range of Graphene Plus enhanced membranes able to adapt to all market applications:
GRAFYTHERM® – 20-micron Graphene Plus enhanced water based polyurethane membrane
GRAFYGUARD™ – Graphene Plus enhanced water based polyurethane membrane coupled with a layer of PTFE membrane
GRAFYOHM™ – Graphene Plus enhanced membrane able to provide high electrical conductivity
Through the acquisition of Directa Textile Solutions (DTS) in 2016, Directa Plus moved to the downstream integration in the textile field. By doing so, Directa Plus started direct promotion and distribution of traditional highly performing membranes together with membranes enhanced with G+® Graphene Plus, GRAFYTHERM®, GRAFYGUARD™, GRAFYOHM™.
DTS has proven to be the perfect integration between Directa Plus’ graphene knowledge and the expertise on technical membranes and consolidated client’s portfolio of Directa Textile Solutions.
In the graphene arena, DTS is the first company that moved to the upstream integration in the textile industry and higher proximity towards textile brands. DTS is offers unique membranes in terms of performances and top-level lamination services.
We developed different types of membranes to meet the needs of the market. The membrane can be laminated directly with the fabric supplied by the customer.
GRAFYTHERM® is a monolayer membrane composed of hydrophilic polyurethane enhanced with G+®. This membrane can be laminated to the customer’s fabric of choice creating bi-layers or three-layers.
• Heat retention and equalization
• Waterproof & Windproof
• Highly breathable
• Thin & Light
GRAFYGUARD™ is a bilayer membrane composed of hydrophilic polyurethane enhanced with G+®, coupled with a layer of PTFE and then laminated to the customer’s fabric of choice. By doing so we can create bi-layers or three-layers.
• Heat retention and equalization
• Highly Waterproof & Windproof
GRAFYOHM® is a monolayer membrane composed of hydrophilic polyurethane enhanced with G+®. This membrane can be laminated to the customer’s fabric of choice. Directa Plus also offers a conductive tape, obtained from this G+® membrane. The tape is thermo-adhesive and is a ready-to-use solution both for different industries.
This product is being currently used in the automotive industry to substitute the copper elements of heating components and in clothing as an alternative to wiring.
• Highly conductive
• Data transmission
G+® membrane as a functional lining for Hugo Boss
This zipped functional sweatshirt was realized with the G+® membrane laminated directly towards the body to exploit heat retention and equalization. The functional lining allows to reduce the padding’s thickness and weight, giving to the user a higher comfort in terms of thermal comfort and fitting.
Cycling jacket with G+® membrane
This cycling jacket by EE sports was realized with a three-layer fabric, enhanced with the G+® membrane. G+® provides thermal comfort, avoiding hot spots, waterproof and windproof properties, without affecting the breathability.
Emotion Energy uses G+® also in the jersey for the sport group of the Penitentiary Police Corps (Fiamme Azzurre).
Elegant jacket with G+®
This elegant trench coat was realized by Clerici Tessuto, one of the leading suppliers in the global textile landscape for luxury brands. The G+® membrane is used as a functional lining to exploit heat retention and equalization, avoiding hot spots.
G+® for luxury
A major Italian luxury fashion brand is using GRAFYTHERM® for its high-end jackets.
The G+® membrane is a versatile technology, that can be laminate also to natural fabrics such as wool and cashmere. This allows our customers to innovate also traditional garments introducing a technology able to reposition the garments in the fashion-tech trend.
the norda™ 001 G+® Spike high performance trail shoe.
Graphene Plus is integrated into the Dyneema® one-piece woven upper lining in the toe box of the shoes. This provides the runner with additional comfort due to the thermal conductivity while adding almost zero additional weight.
G+® for heating applications
Directa Plus together with a Leading Worldwide Supplier of automotive interiors is developing a suite of new products for the automotive industry. The partnership is also exploiting the electrical conductivity properties of GRAFYOHM™.
G+® Starship Jacket
A scuba-designed elastic, wind, and waterproof three-layer hooded jacket. The Starship Jacket is the perfect multipurpose jacket: from extreme situations to daily urban use.
This jacket is based on a three-layer technology, G+® is integrated in the internal layer : Graphene Plus 20-micron membrane. This is the technological heart of the Starship Jacket, allowing optimal management of the heat naturally produced by human body.
The Starship Jacket is available on Directa Plus’ e-commerce graphene-plus.com
