MUNICH – Italian graphene manufacturer Directa Plus has partnered with sports and ski wear brand Colmar, and launched what it claims to be the world’s first application of graphene nanotechnology in sportswear garments.

Directa’s ‘Graphene Plus’ technology was unveiled for the first time in Colmar’s collection of ski jackets and under garments at the recent ISPO sports and outdoor wear exhibition in Munich. It follows a wave of developments in graphene applications – a material which is just one atom thick and 200 times stronger than steel.

Graphene is said to benefit heat resistance, water-proofing, stain repellency, energy storage, electrical capacitance and durability when coated onto fabrics, and Directa says it is helping pave the way for future commercial applications.
