Experts in Nanotechnology and Antibacterial Copper
Plasticopper additive has a unique technology that absorbs copper-based nanostructures on the surface of an inert carrier, thereby achieving prolonged antimicrobial action, according to product needs.
In addition, copper is the only metal certified by EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) as an antimicrobial agent and is effective against microorganisms resistant to antibiotics, such as Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci (VRE), Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) and Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE).
The antimicrobial additive contained in a polymeric matrix or resin, is incorporated into the manufacturing process of the product. Once there, the additive acts releasing copper ions in a continuous and controlled manner.
The microorganisms that come in contact with the product surface, suffer irreparable damage to their membrane and cellular structure, which leads to their destruction. For more information download our technical brochure.
Our team of professionals develops specialized solutions for each product considering its manufacturing process, raw materials and characteristic properties of use and life cycle, adding value in a cost-effective manner.
We advise our clients at every stage of product development, considering the specific requirements of efficiency and durability of its antimicrobial properties.
