Louisville, KY— Olin Brass and Aereus Technologies are teaming up to launch CuVerro Shield™ by Aereus Technologies - a new solid antimicrobial copper alloy solution that kills 99% of bacteria on contact and can be used to enhance nearly any form, shape, or type of solid surface material - including metals, heat-sensitive wood composites, tiles, polymers, and plastics.

CuVerro® works with innovative manufacturers in healthcare, fitness, and other industries to bring an antimicrobial benefit to their product lines. CuVerro® antimicrobial copper kills bacteria 24/7 and is registered to make public health claims with both the EPA in the United States and the PMRA in Canada. CuVerro® is available in a broad range of configurations including strip, sheet, rod, tube, foil, and ingot. Due to a breakthrough new technology, the addition of CuVerro Shield™ to the product portfolio enables CuVerro® to easily incorporate its bacteria-killing copper solution into the production and manufacturing processes of its customers.

“The launch of CuVerro Shield™ represents a strategic expansion of the CuVerro® product portfolio and reinforces the brand’s leadership position in the category. Collaborating with a strong partner like Aereus Technologies has enabled us to bring insight-based innovation to the marketplace in service of our customers,” says Anthony Kulik, Director of Growth & Business Development at Olin Brass. “CuVerro Shield™ is a game-changing innovation that broadens the reach of antimicrobial copper to an endless set of applications around the globe,” adds Ryan Peyman, Chief Financial Officer at Aereus Technologies.
