Antimicrobial Copper Cu+

Innowacje Cu+

Antimicrobial Copper (AMC ) prevents the formation of bacteria, viruses, fungi and molds , including Staphylococcus aureus , influenza A (H1N1), anaerobic bacteria and enterococci.

Antimicrobial Copper (AMC ) is the only surface material , as evidenced by the record of the effectiveness of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency , fighting over 99.9 % of microorganisms in health care within two hours of exposure to the bacteria.

The scientific literature draws attention to the effectiveness of copper against various types of bacteria , fungi and viruses, including:

  •     Acinetobacter baumannii
  •     adenovirus
  •     Aspergillus niger
  •     Candida albicans
  •     Campylobacter jejuni
  •     Clostridium difficile
  •     Enterobacter aerogenes
  •     Escherichia coli O157: H7
  •     Helicobacter pylori
  •     The influenza virus A (H1N1 )
  •     Legionella pneumophila
  •     Listeria monocytogenes
  •     Staphylococcus aureus resistant to methicillin
  •     poliovirus
  •     Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  •     Salmonella enteritidis
  •     Staphylococcus aureus
  •     tubercle bacillus
  •     Enterococci resistant to vancomycin

Studies have shown that the action of antimicrobial copper than two commonly used coating based on silver , in a typical room conditions . Tests conducted on a hospital ward Selly Oak Hospital, showed that the proportion of AMC is effective in combating microorganisms rate of 90-100 % , as compared with conventionally used materials . Tests carried out in the United States and Chile also confirmed these results .

The use of antimicrobial copper alloys (such as brass or bronze ) does not replace the standard control procedures and hygiene activities . Copper Surfaces should be cleaned and disinfected in accordance with accepted standards. Centers , in which the copper must use and maintain the product in accordance with the guidelines for infection control , users must comply with all current infection control principles , including those of the surface in contact with food .

There are about 300 different antimicrobial copper alloys , with different colors and different surface structures . This means that for sure we choose the type of copper that best meets the needs of the interior. Surfaces coated with an alloy of AMC can not be waxed , painted , painted , coated or otherwise protected . Feet are oxidized to different degrees , which does not affect the efficiency of agents. In the present innovation medical devices currently available in versions antibacterial , produced from selected copper alloys.
