THE ANTIMICROBIAL PROPERTIES OF COPPER
However, the Internet is full of misinformation, pseudo-science, and bad faith capitalism, so on this page, please find our statements regarding the antimicrobial properties of copper, along with peer reviewed articles from scientifically rigorous sources. We will continue to update this research along with our validation testing.
Peer Reviewed Research on Copper
In 2008, the EPA registered almost 300 different copper surfaces as antimicrobial.
Exposure to dry copper alloy surfaces, such as brass, kills a wide spectrum of microorganisms including Gram negative and Gram positive bacteria and fungi, and permanently inactivates several types of viruses.
Results suggest that copper alloy surfaces could be a powerful tool against the transmission of infectious disease in public settings, most particularly hospitals.
A few general principles appear clear: higher copper content of alloys, higher temperature, and higher relative humidity increased the efficacy of contact killing.
