FOUR ways this PROVEN ancient metal offers the ultimate modern-day touch surface protection

The next time you go to open a door, steady yourself on the stairs, or frequent your favorite restaurant you may notice copper as the first layer of protection to kill germs on the surfaces you touch. Researchers and the EPA are confirming copper’s ability to kill germs in as little as one minute, including COVID-19 and its variants . Viruses and bacteria can live for days on everyday touch surfaces, including hospital grade stainless steel. Killing germs like Covid-19 has taken on new importance as businesses, restaurants, schools and even private consumers work to keep their communities and their families safe.

So why choose CopperDisinfector EPA-approved antimicrobial copper? Tested and proven by the EPA and independent testing labs.

For one, it’s a chemical-free, green, 24/7 disinfection technology that lasts for years without the need for reapplication.

Here are a few more reasons…

It’s been used as a safe disinfecting agent for centuries

Research shows ancient civilizations started using copper between 7,000-10,000 years ago. 

Now, modern-day researchers are calling for a copper resurgence to help kill more than 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on touch surfaces, including COVID-19. In this Stat News article from September of 2020, Michael Schmidt, a professor of microbiology and immunology at the Medical University of South Carolina said, “Copper is the fastest thing that can kill anything.”

Cities and states are taking notice.

Lawmakers in New York are currently considering legislation to “study the use of solid antimicrobial materials for touch surfaces in the construction of public buildings.”

The Los Angeles Kings installed dumbbells and attachments made with antimicrobial copper surfaces in their strength and training facility.

Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport installed more than 50 water bottle filling stations made from antimicrobial copper back in 2014 and Pullman Regional Hospital in Washington State gave high-use areas a healthy makeover with antimicrobial copper.

CopperDisinfector ™ is EPA-registered, chemical-free, green technology with 99.9% killing power

Copper has natural, non-chemical, antimicrobial properties. In February of this year, the EPA registered antimicrobial copper (like CopperDisinfector) for residual use against coronavirus, making copper the first product with residual claims against viruses to be registered for use nationwide. CopperDisinfector is unique in how it destroys germs , and studies show it kills greater than 99% of bacteria within two hours.

Provides long-lasting, 24/7, chemical-free protection

Once installed, CopperDisinfector’s natural copper antimicrobial properties go to work 24/7, killing germs and bacteria simply by being there. No need to reapply and the product can last for years on a variety of touch surfaces. Even in a green, oxidized state, the disinfection properties remain, although it’s important to still clean the surface regularly.

Easy to install with minimal maintenance

Our patent-pending CopperDisinfector is independently tested and approved by the EPA. It takes just minutes to install and can be used on a variety of touch surfaces. While you do have to initially activate the copper surface, it merely requires regular cleaning and disinfection to continue its germ-killing power.
