Copper, along with its alloys (such as brass, bronze, copper-nickel-zinc, and others) are naturally antimicrobial materials. Copper alloy surfaces have unique properties that are able to destroy a number of microorganisms. A large number of studies have been conducted that demonstrated copper’s efficacy at destroying E. coli, MRSA, the influenza virus and many others.
Aside from its antibacterial properties, Copper is also popular due to its other favourable attributes, including being corrosion resistant, malleable and highly conductive. Its aesthetic characteristics make copper a popular choice for a range of coverings and claddings. It is widely used in kitchens, bathrooms and across the rest of the home.
