Certified projects and products
We are committed to always achieve the highest level of antimicrobial protection to deliver safety. This is why we certify the efficacy of our products with leading entities, recognised third party laboratories and Universities with science and innovation trayectories, such as the University of Chile and the University of Southampton in the UK.
Copper is the only metal certified by the USA Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its antimicrobial properties, and because it does not pollute the environment. And our own Copptech technology already has four EPA registrations, allowing it to be commercialized and guaranteeing its performance.
The efficacy of antimicrobial copper is supported by multiple research studies, one of which was conducted by the US Department of Defense – presented in 2011 in Geneva at the WHO Conference on Infection Prevention. This proved its ability to reduce the risk of infection by more than 40% (Schmidt, 2011).
Copptech has multiple formulations, using different antimicrobial ingredients. We have certifications for all products on the market with our logo. Choosing the Copptech logo is choosing protection, health and wellbeing – all scientifically backed by the highest international standards.
