COPPER VS SILVER

WHICH IS THE BEST ANTIMICROBIAL?

SILVER

Ag Precious Metal

COPPER

Cu Metal Esencial

Ag
Ag+
1 ion
Destroys cell membrane and poisons the cell
MECHANISMS OF ACTION
Cu
Cu+ Cu++ O2-
2 ions + super oxide
Destroys the cell membrane, poisons the cell and produces a toxic super oxide that destroys through free radicals.
poderAg
Effective only at high temperature and high humidity levels.
ANTIMICROBIAL POWER
poderCu
Effective at all temperatures and humidity levels
No biological function. Must be eliminated by the body through the liver and can damage organs and tissues
TOXICITY
Essential for health, especially for metabolic and enzymatic processes.
resistenciaAg
Staphylococcus aureus
Some bacteria have developed resistance to silver.
BACTERIAL RESISTANCE
ResistenciaCu
In over thousands of years of use, there is still no evidence of bacteria having antimicrobial resistance to copper.
AgCovid
Silver has a reduced effect in inhibiting encapsulated viruses (Sars-Cov-2).
ACTION AGAINST VIRUSES
CuCovid
Extensive evidence of its antiviral action on all viral families. Such as Coronavirus Family (including Sars-Cov-2) and Influenza.
AgEPA
Silver is not registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to make public health claims.
INTERNATIONAL REGISTRATIONS
CuEPA
Copper is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to make public health claims.
AgVelocidad
Silver has a slow action mechanism, which is measured at 24 hours.
SPEED OF ACTION
CuVelocidad
Copper has been shown to be 8 times faster in killing bacteria and viruses than silver.
AgDuracion
Silver’s antimicrobial action is of medium duration, largely dependent on the type of application.
DURATION OF EFFECT
CuDuracion
Silver’s antimicrobial action is of high duration, due to its low solubility.
