Microbes have been an integral part of life on earth for thousands of years. While many microbes are necessary for our existence, some can also be a danger to our health. Antimicrobials are substances that kill or slow down the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses and fungi.
Copper-based antimicrobials provide excellent bioactivity and non-resistance to pathogenic microbes at low concentrations and are also highly effective against a wide range of microbes such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and algae. Additionally, copper is also an essential micronutrient for the body. The uptake of copper in the human body comes with several advantages. Copper helps in the greasing of joints and helps regulate obesity and women’s menstrual periods. It also helps in maintaining the digestive system and reducing bad cholesterol. Copper also aids in the healing of wounds, prevention of seizures, maintaining cardiovascular health, reducing cell damage and slowing down ageing
Our patented active copper technology optimizes the effectiveness of copper as an antimicrobial to produce nanoparticles in dispersion and powder form. These nanoparticles are highly versatile and can be combined with several materials to produce masterbatches, plastics, textile formulations and paints.
