Antimicrobial Copper is a family of copper alloys suited for use where it is important to minimize bacterial levels on touch surfaces.
It should be used for products and surfaces such as handles, hand rails, door hardware, countertops, and more in facilities where microbial contamination on surfaces is a threat to public health. They kill 99.9% of bacteria within two hours.
The material can be easily shaped to the required form and dimensions by any of the common forming processes for metals and can be readily assembled by any of the various joining techniques.
Copper alloys exhibit good strength and formability, have outstanding resistance to corrosion and fatigue, and are generally nonmagnetic. They can be polished and buffed to almost any desired texture and luster. Additionally, they are 100% recyclable.
Available in a wide variety of forms and sizes. Available forms include sheet, plate, rod, tube, bar, billet, wire, and more.
