CuVerro Shield™ by Aereus Technologies is a new solid antimicrobial copper alloy solution that kills 99.9% of germs1 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 Shield™ offers easy integration into any manufacturing line, is strong, durable and permanent -- unlike other chemical coatings or additives that might chip off of a surface, CuVerro Shield never wears down or away -- with a thickness of up to .01 inches -- and remains active for the life of the product.
CuVerro Shield™ uses a breakthrough new technology -- a proprietary thermal fabrication technique -- to heat the copper alloy, permanently binding CuVerro® antimicrobial copper to any shape or form during the manufacturing process, which starts and ends as solid copper.
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. The addition of CuVerro Shield™ to the product portfolio enables CuVerro® to easily incorporate its antimicrobial copper solution into the specific manufacturing processes of their customers.
CuVerro Shield™ opens the door for a number of opportunities in a time-sensitive and cost-effective way and offers a quick turnaround for prototyping and sampling. This innovative antimicrobial solid copper coating is only available through CuVerro®.
The versatility of CuVerro Shield™ allows it to be used across many industries and products where the potential for exposure to infectious bacteria is a concern, including:
- Consumer appliances
- Healthcare bed rails
- Food processing equipment
- Toilet seats
- Handles and grips
- Light switches and other complex shapes
