What is Copper Shield?
Copper Shield is an anti-microbial self-adhesive copper coating. Copper Shield can be used to cover nearly all frequently used surfaces, such as handles, handrails, door handles, switches, etc. Copper Shield is based on 99.9% natural copper, which is found in nature. Copper Shield coating has a permanent bactericidal and antiviral effect, which is maintained even after abrasion and long-term use. Copper possesses natural antimicrobial properties. Copper prevents the growth of microbes and is also able to destroy them. This property has been studied and proven in several countries and in studies conducted by various international research groups. Copper and copper alloys are used in the present day for items requiring a high level of hygiene, such as coins, door handles and drinking water systems.
Why Copper Shield?
In October 2020, Synergy Diagnostic Laboratory (a federally licensed medical laboratory for providing Covid-19 testing in the United States) conducted a test of the persistence of the SARS-Cov-2 virus on Copper Shield. The stability of SARS-Cov-2 on the virus-infected Copper Shield surface and on a virus-free control surface were assessed. The study revealed that SARS-Cov-2 is completely destroyed after 5 minutes on Copper Shield.
