What is CuVerro® ?
CuVerro® is a solid surface that's a unique class of copper. The surface continuously kills 99.9% harmful bacteria*, when cleaned regularly, and is the latest innovation by Olin Brass, a global leader in copper-based alloys.
CuVerro® represents the only class of solid surface materials registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to actively kill bacteria*. The inherent properties work 24/7 in between cleaning, never washing out or wearing away, making CuVerro® ideally suited for commonly touched surfaces where bacteria is a concern. Easy to maintain, CuVerro® is tarnish-resistant and will not oxidize and turn green like pure copper.
Engineered for durability and strength with bactericidal efficacy, it's backed by EPA registration, unlike coatings and additives. CuVerro® is more than antimicrobial - it's bactericidal, meaning it KILLS bacteria and does not only inhibit bacterial growth.
This innovation is a Victory for HandsTM everywhere.
CuVerro® is a product of Olin Brass, insuring the technical, R&D, distribution and service support that customers require, as well as information to help customers with regulatory compliance necessary to sell bactericidal copper surfaces in the marketplace. Olin Brass currently holds 37 High Performance Alloy (HPA) U.S. patents and 39 other U.S. patents related to various processing and technical capabilities.

In The News:
*Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, CuVerro® surfaces kill greater than 99.9% of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E. coli O157:H7, and Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VRE).
The use of CuVerro® bactericidal copper products is a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices, including those practices related to cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces. This surface has been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but it does not necessarily prevent cross contamination.
