Fight COVID-19 with Copper, Brass, Bronze

Fight COVID-19 and other dangerous pathogens with a copper or copper based alloy countertop and sink, where germs and viruses are likely to gather and linger. It is well documented that copper and copper alloys such as brass and bronze kill viruses and microbes on contact. This natural ability to fight pathogens means that unsealed surfaces are self-disinfecting and will destroy COVID-19, as well as other viruses including stomach illness producing noroviruses and bacteria. These properties have been put to use since ancient times, though the scientific reasons for its efficacy have only come to light much more recently. Here are some quotes from the American Society of Microbiology addressing some of copper’s amazing properties:

  • “Rapid inactivation of human coronavirus occurs on brass and copper nickel surfaces at room temperature (21°C).”
  • “…noroviruses are destroyed on copper alloy surfaces.”
  • “…copper alloy surfaces could be employed in communal areas and at any mass gatherings to help reduce transmission of respiratory viruses from contaminated surfaces and protect the public health.”
  • “…highly infectious nonenveloped viruses that are resistant to environmental stress and impervious to many cleaning agents, are destroyed on copper and copper alloy surfaces”
  • “Copper alloys have demonstrated excellent antibacterial and antifungal activity against a range of pathogens in laboratory studies.”
  • “In this new study, human coronavirus 229E was rapidly inactivated on a range of copper alloys (within a few minutes for simulated fingertip contamination) and Cu/Zn brasses were very effective at lower copper concentration.”
