“Human Coronavirus was found to be permanently and rapidly deactivated upon contact with copper.”

Copper kills more than 99.9% of infection causing bacteria within 2 hours

Antimicrobial copper is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as being able to kill greater than 99.9% of infection causing bacteria within 2 hours of exposure.

Copper is proven to kill:

  • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VRE)
  • Enterobacter aerogenes
  • Escherichia coli O157:H7
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Human immunodeficiency viruses (HIV)
  • Middle East respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus (MERS)
  • Severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus (SARS)
  • Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE)

“A 71% reduction in the bacterial load of copper surfaces was observed compared to that of the control surfaces.”

And that's not all...

Shows dirt
Stainless steel appears clean when it is dirty - surely that is troublesome. Copper, meanwhile, is criticised for tarnishing over time and for visibly showing dirt. We believe this is a positive, not a negative. Using our Copper Cleaning Disinfectant, clients can ensure that their touch surfaces will appear clean when they are indeed clean.
Long lasting
“It can be approximated that in 2006 there were about 720,000 hospital-acquired infections in the United States, causing $125 billion in extra hospital charges.”
Low maintenance
“Copper and copper alloys have been used by humans for thousands of years, yet no bacteria fully resistant to [copper] contact killing have been discovered.”
