Aereus Technologies’ EPA-registered antimicrobial copper products are a highly versatile way to continuously fight bacteria*. Science suggests that antimicrobial copper surface contact kills bacteria* with a multi-faceted attack. Its thin, durable copper alloy layer can be applied to almost any solid surface.
Copper ions on the surface are recognized as an essential nutrient, and enter the cell
A lethal dose of copper ions interfers with normal cell functions and membrane integrity
Copper ions impede cell respiration/metabolism, sometimes causing DNA damage
