Introducing GCLO, a global leader in eco-friendly functional polymers and products.
After conducting basic R&D of functional polymers and eco-friendly fibers since 2002, G.CLO Inc. was established in 2011 with the goal of becoming a more professional ‘eco-friendly functional polymer R&D best company’.
After continuous R&D with registration of numerous domestic and global patents and acquisition of various certificates, in 2016, we became a partner with the PD Group, which owns Courtaulds textile in the UK, which has led the textile industry for more than 200 years.
In 2019, we launched the Ceravida® technology brand with the completion of Junlite, a human-friendly and nature-friendly bioceramic material, and started to achieve innovation with eco-friendly functional polymer material technology.
As a result of long-term R&D efforts, in 2020, along with the FDA medical device registration of a multifunctional function yarn for HEAT, COOL, and RECOVER, antibacterial agents using pure natural substances were completed.
G.CLO, based on the achievements of over 20 years of research and development, has applied innovative and creative Ceravida® technology to our daily products starting in 2021, for a healthier and more comfortable life and our sustainable environment. We will become a leading company in ‘Eco-friendly functional technologies and products through creative technological innovation’.
