A practical copper antimicrobial tinted film that can be applied to many frequently touched surfaces. Viruses and bacteria survive longer on hard surfaces than on soft ones with fibres. So antimicrobial coatings can play an important role in reducing transmission, particularly when used as part of an overall cleaning management programme.
Copper has been proven to kill many germs on contact*. Compared with 24 hours on cardboard (paper) and 2-3 days on plastics and stainless steel, Coronavirus extinction times are within 4 hours on copper.
In South Korea, where the virus has been managed extremely well, Copper Films have been used extensively to reduce the chance of virus transmission on touch surface.
