Arvind develops graphene denim

Arvind will use Directa Plus’ graphene-based products in denim fabrics.

The products can be used in a variety of ways to alter or enhance the properties of conventional denim fabrics, and to produce smart clothing for different purposes and environments. End-users will benefit from the thermal and electrical conductivity and bacteriostatic properties, such as thermal regulation, heat dissipation, energy harvesting, data transmission and no odor effect.

Directa Plus is a supplier of graphene-based products for use in consumer and industrial markets. Arvind is India’s leading textile-to-retail-and-brands conglomerate. Each year Arvind Denim produces over 100 million meters of fabrics and six million pairs of jeans.

The use of graphene in denims is new and is expected to yield some of the smartest, most widely used fabrics in the years ahead. Graphene is a nanomaterial that, when processed and blended with other materials, significantly enhances their performance.

Directa Plus’ graphene-based products give remarkable properties or added functionality to a variety of consumer and industrial products. The company utilises a unique and patented technique called Plasma Super Expansion. Its production process is scalable, portable, chemical-free and results in almost zero waste.

Directa Plus was established in 2005 in Italy to develop innovative nanomaterial production processes. The company has developed its own exfoliation process that can be used to produce super-expanded graphite and fine nanographite powder.
