Antimicrobial Copper

Laser and Waterjet Cut Copper Profiles

We are approved providers of laser cut and waterjet cut antimicrobial copper profiles for use within the medical industry.

Copper and certain copper alloys are inherently antimicrobial, meaning it will eliminate 99.9% bacteria and viruses that settle on the surface within 2 hours.

During the past 20 years, further research into the antimicrobial characteristics of copper and copper alloys has proven the efficacy of copper against a number of pathogens. This has led to a number of clinical trials in a number of countries investigated the practical aspects of installing copper in hospital environments, the finding of which have been very positive.

As a result of this solid base of evidence, the installation of antimicrobial copper products has taken place in hospitals and healthcare facilities in the UK and around the world, as well as in other areas where there may be a high risk of the spread of infection, such as care homes and schools.

As approved partners of the International Copper Association, and by displaying the Cu+ mark, Charles Day have been granted permission to market antimicrobial copper cutting services based on strict usage rules.

What copper alloys are considered as Antimicrobial?

We have the capacity to laser or waterjet cut any copper alloy, including all alloys that fall the antimicrobial copper brand.

We usually keep CW100C, CW501L and CW508L copper alloys in stock, however we are more than happy to cut free issue material or source your required material for you.
