WHY COPPER AND NOT SILVER?

Copper and Silver kill a variety of different bacteria. However, copper is a safer and more effective choice.

COPPER IS ALSO EFFECTIVE AGAINST VIRUSES 

Copper is effective at eliminating a broad spectrum of pathogens including viruses, bacteria and fungi.

Copper is proven to be effective at eliminating the COVID-19 virus within 4 hours.

Silver is mainly antibacterial and less effective against viruses and fungi.

COPPER WORKS AT ALL TEMPERATURES

Copper is effective at killing both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria across all levels of temperature, making it a suitable solution for any environment.

Silver's efficiency is affected by ambient temperatures. It is found to be less effective in environments with neutral temperatures.

A study by The Society for Applied Microbiology demonstrated that antimicrobial activity was detected in silver at 35°C (95°F). This is relatively high. At room temperature biocidal activity was negligible. 

COPPER HAS A LONGER LIFETIME/ DURABILITY

Owed to a low solubility, copper has a high lifetime and durability. 

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, silver has a lower durability than copper. 

COPPER HAS A LOWER TOXICITY LEVEL

Copper is the only metal that has antimicrobial properties and is also an essential micronutrient for humans and other living things.

Copper is used in neurotransmitter synthesis, cell respiration and other vital processes. 

The toxicity of silver is 65x higher than copper according to the EPA. 

COPPER WORKS IN ALL HUMIDITY LEVELS

Copper is efficient at eliminating pathogens across all levels of humidity, making it a suitable solution for any environment.

Silver is found to be affected by ambient humidity. In presence of sweat for example, a decreased efficiency is found.

A study by The Society for Applied Microbiology demonstrated that antimicrobial activity was detected in silver at 95% relative humidity. This is relatively high. At 20% humidity biocidal activity was negligible. 

COPPER IS GOOD FOR THE HUMAN BODY

Copper promotes wound healing as well as the elasticity of our human skin.

Copper is also an essential micronutrient used in important biological processes. 

Silver can cause mild skin irritations and abnormalities in basic cell functions.

HOW IT WORKS

An all-purpose weapon against pathogens 

Our antimicrobial agent effectively and continuously kills 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, germs and fungi on surfaces within a short period of time. 

Our copper-based solutions break down the cell wall of viruses, germs, fungi, and bacteria and destroy the genome. The RNA and DNA are destroyed, preventing the virus from mutating or developing resistance towards copper.

Humankind has exploited the inherent antimicrobial properties of copper since the dawn of civilization because copper has broad antimicrobial efficacy against a broad spectrum of bacteria, fungi, and viruses.
