Copper has been used as a disinfectant agent for centuries, and copper surfaces kill bacteria, viruses, and even fungi. Examples include methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), E.coli, norovirus (which gives the “stomach flu”), influenza viruses, and candida albicans. The underlying mechanisms are thought to be disruption of cell membranes and cellular respiration in bacteria and fungi, and by destroying proteins in viruses. Copper bonds well to many materials and can be cold spray deposited onto a wide variety of metal surfaces, such as aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel, and others.
