Directa Plus’ Graphene Plus textiles are non-irritating

November 20, 2017 - United Kingdom

Graphene Plus (G+) membrane and G+ printed fabrics of Directa Plus, a producer and supplier of graphene-based products for use in consumer and industrial markets, have got international certification from Complife Italia (formerly Farcoderm) (Complife), the independent toxicity testing organisation, confirming they do not cause any irritation to human skin.

Complife is a specialist testing agency that assesses safety, tolerability and sensory aspects of all products that may come in contact with human skin. The Company’s G+ membrane and printed fabrics were dermatologically tested by Complife, involving 48-hour patch tests on 25 individuals, and certified as ‘non-irritating’. This complements previous tests conducted by Complife (then operating as Farcoderm) on all of Directa Plus’ graphene-based materials, which were certified as safe for human contact.

Giulio Cesareo, chief executive officer of Directa Plus, said: “We are pleased to have our G+ membrane and printed fabrics proven to be non-irritating to human skin. This adds to the certification we received last year that our graphene-based materials are non-toxic and non-cytotoxic. With our Graphene Plus textiles, our customers can truly differentiate their products as innovative, performance-enhancing and comfortable to wear. We have always prided ourselves on the safety and environmental credentials of our production processes and graphene-based products, and this new certification further represents that commitment.” (SV)
