Approximately four million people in the EU acquire a healthcare-associated infection each year, from which approximately 37,000 die. Antimicrobial Copper kills the microbes that cause these infections.

Three main characteristics make Antimicrobial Copper the most effective touch surface material:

1. Continuously Kills Microbes

  • Remains effective even after repeated wet and dry abrasion and re-contamination
  • Natural oxidation does not impair efficacy.

3. Safe To Use

  • Not harmful to people or the environment
  • Inherently antimicrobial, no chemicals added
  • Completely recyclable.
