Zen Graphene Solutions Ltd. (TSXV: ZEN) (OTC Pink: ZENYF) ("ZEN" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed a binding letter of intent (LOI) with Trebor Rx Corp. (Trebor), a Canadian personal protective equipment mask manufacturer with an initial production facility located in Collingwood, Ontario on Saturday November 7th 2020. This binding LOI includes the initial purchase of ZEN's patent pending graphene based viricidal coating for a minimum of 100 million masksfilters with pricing of these maskfilters being variable based on a number of factors. This initial minimum order is for the first year and is subject to Health Canada approvals.
George Irwin, CEO of Trebor commented, "This is truly a game changer in the PPE space. Trebor is ecstatic to be working with such an innovative company and it is a pleasure to be partnered with Greg and Francis on this journey. With our production on the Pro+ mask already started and our 3Ply beginning in December of this year we anxiously await the production of masks with the ZEN viricidal coating. Trebor's goal is to deliver a quality Canadian made product and it just got better with ZEN as our partner."
Trebor has a new standard of N95 mask, the patent pending Pro+ Respirator Mask (Pro+). The Pro+ mask, combined with ZEN's viricidal coating, will set a new standard of protection while solving problems of costs, comfort, and medical waste. The Pro+ is both reusable and also 99% recyclable making it one of the best environmental choices. Trebor will also be offering a 3-ply surgical mask with ZEN's proven viricidal protection.
Greg Fenton, ZEN's Chief Strategy Officer commented, "This is a historic day for ZEN. The signing of this significant commercial agreement is a watershed moment for our organization. Moreover, it is an honour for ZEN to partner with a Canadian company like Trebor and develop a 100% Canadian solution in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The innovation of the Trebor Pro+ Respirator Mask will set a new standard in the mask industry and, combined with our viricidal coating, will bring a new level of safety for our front-line workers. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with George and Brenda throughout this process, as Trebor and ZEN share a similar philosophy in terms of innovation and positioning our respective firms in both the Canadian and global markets."
