Copper and Zinc Benefits
Importance of Copper and Zinc in people’s lives.
The World Health Organization studies revealed that 80% of diseases are spread by contact. While the human immune system is trained to fight and kill foreign cells and molecules, infectious diseases are still a major cause of mortality worldwide.

In this context both copper and zinc may play a key role to improve the life quality of people.

Copper has beneficial properties that can help address this:


  • Contributes to the production of red blood cells, and preservation of blood vessels, nerves and bones.
  • Its biocidal properties can eliminate fungi, bacteria and viruses.
  • Reduces odors caused by bacteria and fungi.
  • Helps collagen generation as well as skin elasticity and pigmentation.
  • Protects skin from infections.


Technology
Revolutionary Technology Within Reach
Copptech takes the antimicrobial properties of copper and incorporates them into various materials at a molecular level.

Copptech takes the antimicrobial properties of copper and incorporates them into various materials at a molecular level.

When copper encounters bacteria, it reacts through two sequential steps:



Upon contact with humidity, our technology releases copper and zinc ions, which penetrate into microorganisms, altering and eliminating their vital functions.

  • 1. The copper molecule interacts directly with the outer membrane of the bacteria, causing its rupture.
  • 2. The bacterial loses vital nutrients and water through the perforations in the membrane – causing general weakening of the bacteria.

Copptech technology can be incorporated into various materials for a wide range of end uses including:


  • Textile yarns
  • Non woven fabrics
  • Polymers (Polyester, Nylon, Polypropylene, Polyethylene, Polystyrene, ABS, EVA, silicones, etc.)
  • Foams
  • Extruded shapes
  • Injected shapes
  • Resins
  • Films
  • Varnishes, paints
Copptech owns this technology which is internationally patented.
