Anti-Viral Shieldex Copper Tape
Copper tape which can be used on door handles, push/pull handles and window frames
International studies have repeatedly proven that copper has antiviral, antibacterial and fungicidal properties, so that it shortens the half-life of viruses, bacteria and fungi and some hospitals use door handles made of solid copper.
It can be used on all smooth and metallic surfaces, but not recommended on textiles. Possible applications are on door handles, push/pull handles and window frames.
This product serves as a supplementary measure and does not replace hygiene measures such as regular & thorough hand washing or hand disinfection.
A study in 2015 from The University of Southampton, commissioned by the US authorities, showed that Corona viruses are also inactivated by copper in a very short time.
Lead researcher Dr Sarah Warnes said: ‘Human coronavirus, which also has ancestral links with bat-like viruses responsible for SARS and MERS, was found to be permanently and rapidly deactivated upon contact with copper. What’s more, the viral genome and structure of the viral particles were destroyed, so nothing remained that could pass on an infection. With the lack of antiviral treatments, copper offers a measure that can help reduce the risk of these infections spreading.’
Independent laboratory research has shown that Shieldex® Copper-Tape, through a unique metallisation process, has an average 7 times higher release of copper ions compared to solid copper.
