- Directa Plus announced that it had commenced a trial of re-surfacing a section of a UK road in Curbridge, Oxfordshire with materials containing its G+ graphene substance.

New technologies such as the super modifier had the potential to vastly improve the quality of road surfaces throughout Europe and the wider world, according to Directa Plus.

Directa Plus partnered with Iterchimica, an Italian based world leader in products that enhance asphalt performance, to carry out the trial.

'The trial, comparing asphalt concrete with the super modifier to a traditional asphalt surfacing, will assess; service life; resistance to the passage of vehicles; resistance to deformation; and permanent plastic deformation,' Directa said.

'This trial is an important step for Directa Plus and Iterchemica, in partnership, in proving the business and use case for the next generation of graphene enhanced road surfaces,' it added.
