What is Antimicrobial Copper Film?
At BostoncleaN, we have partnered with the leader of antimicrobial copper-based peel and stick films. These films can be attached to non-porous, flat surfaces and they help protect facilities from COVID-19.
Now, we’ll explore how antimicrobial copper film works, where it can be used, and why it is a great option for keeping your Boston area office or facility safe and clean!
How Does It Work?
When bacteria and viruses land on the copper surface by touching or sneezing, the copper surface springs into action. Here is the science between the four steps which take place:
- The bacteria lies on the surface of the film
- An ion of copper attacks the surface of bacteria
- The copper ion penetrates into the surface of a cell and protein
- Metabolic actions stop and the DNA/RNA are dismantled
Other Facts About Antimicrobial Copper Film
How Long Does it Take for Copper Film to Work?
Studies have shown that within 30 minutes of touching the film, 99.4% of the virus and other bacteria are no longer present on surfaces wrapped and treated with CU + copper film. Within four hours, 99.9% of the virus and all other bacteria are eliminated.
Where Can You Use Copper Film?
At BostoncleaN, we provide peel and stick copper films that will protect surfaces for up to six months. This product is available in many sizes and can be cut to order if it is being applied to larger surfaces such as:
- Stainless hospital treatment tables
- Food service preparation areas
- Restaurant tables
Copper film is also ideal for smaller areas such as
- Handicap door openers
- Elevator buttons
- Door handles
- Medical computer carts
Installation & Maintenance
The BostoncleaN team makes installing and maintaining your copper films easy and stress-free. We will visit your facility and work closely with you to determine your needs and to provide you with an onsite tutorial on how to best apply the CU + film. Our goal is to make sure that our clients get the most life out of their CU + application. We recommend replacing antimicrobial copper film every 6 months to avoid residue build up, but the effectiveness of CU + never expires and remains in perfect condition.
