Graphene technology goes commercial

Swatches | March 1, 2022 | By:

While graphene is recognized as one of the thinnest, lightest and most heat-conductive materials available, it has been considered too costly for commercial apparel. Reebok International Limited’s THERMOWARM + GRAPHENE sportswear collection utilizes graphene as a grid print in the garments’ most pivotal heat retention zones to absorb and retain body heat. Reebok says that the strategically placed THERMOWARM+GRAPHENE internal grid print zone technology helps retain 8–15 percent more heat than unprinted zones.

Chandler Frost, senior product manager at Reebok, explains that the technology enables Reebok to maintain commercial, competitive price points throughout the collection. “We’re thrilled that the collection has already received award recognition—thus proving how pivotal the technology will be for the future of sportswear,” says Frost. “We are still in the early innings of exploring all the ways graphene can be utilized on sportswear.” Photo: Reebok International.
