Antimicrobial Copper Alloys

Since 2008, when Cuverro® antimicrobial alloys became the first solid surface materials to be granted “antimicrobial public health claims” status by U.S. EPA*, the market for these unique alloys has grown exponentially across a wide range of industries, from healthcare to education to hospitality and beyond.

Some applications are

Increasingly, CuVerro surfaces are supplanting stainless steel in areas and applications where an effective sterility program is crucial, such as operating rooms. It is also proving cost-effective over the long term, as its inherent bactericidal properties are not affected by scratching, handling, autoclaving and cleaning with aggressive chemicals. 

CuVerro’s inherent properties are ideal for high traffic environments such as schools, government buildings and offices, and other public facilities where antimicrobial touch surfaces can play a vital role in any infection control program.

Used as a substitute and replacement for steel, CuVerro  can be used to form control handles, food preparation surfaces, machine components and devices – ideal for facilities where the risk of contamination could affect thousands and destroy even the most diligent company’s reputation.

Hotels, bars, cafes, restaurants – that’s just a sampling of the food service facilities where CuVerro touch surfaces are being employed to help hinder the spread of infection and contamination.
