CuVerro® C69300 – Antimicrobial Brass

Copper is a well-known material and has been used for centuries.  CuVerro’s efficacy as an antimicrobial brass is proven far more effective than stainless steel or silver-containing coatings, it has been proven to continuously kill the bacteria* that cause infections, and is the only solid antimicrobial touch surface approved by the EPA.  Antimicrobial Copper alloys are extremely versatile and can be manufactured using a variety of conventional metal manufacturing processes, such as drawn, machined, cast, joined and bent.

* Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, CuVerro surfaces kill greater than 99.9% of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus aureus, Entrerobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli O157:H7. The use of CuVerro® antimicrobial copper products is a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices, including those practices related to cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces. This surface has been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but it does not necessarily prevent cross contamination. It should not be interpreted that CuVerro® is making claims to solely prevent hospital associated infections nor should it be implied that CuVerro® products make such claims.
