How do CuVerro® surfaces compare to other antimicrobial surfaces?
Q: How do CuVerro® surfaces compare to other antimicrobial surfaces?
A: There is literally no comparison. CuVerro® bactericidal copper surfaces represent the FIRST class of solid antimicrobial surfaces recognized and registered by the EPA to make public health claims for their inherent ability to kill infectious bacteria1 within 2 hours of exposure.
CuVerro® is backed by sound science, GLP testing and EPA registration. Other surface coatings or additives (containing nano-silver, Triclosan, silane or even small concentrations of copper) that imply antimicrobial efficacy are neither tested to EPA’s GLP protocols, nor recognized by the EPA to protect people against disease-causing bacteria.

Because CuVerro® alloys contain at least 60 percent copper, they have the power to kill 99.9% of bacteria within 2 hours and continue to kill bacteria throughout the day—something that silver coatings and plastic additives can not do, and cannot claim to do.
