• Antimicrobial

Copper metal has naturally a very strong antimicrobial and antibacterial surface.

Pathogens are killed on antimicrobial copper very rapidly. Comparatively they can survive for months on Stainless or PVC surface. Drug resistant bacteria are also killed by copper.

La Bronze Alloys has launched two brands to support this activity:

Steriall: Architectural components made of antimicrobial copper (handles, handrail, …)

Cubiclin’: Antimicrobial copper raw material to be incorporated in finished products (bar for beds or for chairs, handle for bus, push buttons for elevator, …)

An important R&D program supports these brands with several lines of research:

  • Study of the condition over time of the antimicrobial properties
  • Study the conditions to keep the aesthetic appearance of antimicrobial surfaces
  • Adjust the alloys to have the highest performance against contaminant viruses and bacteria
  • Estimate the patient benefit within the weak immune defense system population

Application

  • Offices
  • Housing
  • Restrooms
  • Hospital and clinics
  • Home for the elderly
  • Nursery
  • Public transport
  • Manufactured products (chairs, beds, telephones…)

Alloys and standards

Thanks to several years of research and development, Lebronze alloys has acquired an important know-how in antimicrobial materials. This know-how has led to the development and commercialization of products with very strong antimicrobial properties.

Some scientific studies are currently being undertaken assessing our Steriall alloys performance.

Our references

Different hospitals and clinics in France as Rambouillet Hospital, Clinique du Tonkin in Villeurbanne or Clinique du Parc in Perigueux are protecting their patients thanks to Steriall products.
Restaurants, offices, medical homes or private houses that we have equipped benefit from the properties of antimicrobial copper.
