Thanks to in vitro and in vivo studies conducted by LBA and its scientific partners, Steriall® is the copper alloy solution with the most effective and long-lasting antimicrobial power in real conditions.
The Steriall® antimicrobial alloy is part of the Steriall solution developed by Lebronze alloys. It is a wrought single-phase copper alloy, which mechanical characteristics and strength well above common copper, and with superior swaging characteristics. It is non-magnetic and resists mechanical wear and galling. It can be forged, swaged and machined easily into complex components whilst being environmentally friendly, being both lead and beryllium free.
Among the "antimicrobial copper" offers available on the market, Steriall® is the one that has been the subject of the most peer-reviewed scientific publications. It is the only solution whose results have been optimized and scientifically proven in real-life situations, for example: a 60% reduction in bacterial contamination of surfaces (time-average over several months), and a 4-fold reduction in the number of people infected during certain viral outbreaks.
The development of Steriall® is based on 10+ years of research in laboratory and real conditions resulting in a pending patent. Steriall® outperforms the NFS 90-700 norm on antimicrobial power.
Steriall® material exhibits mechanical performances well above that of pure copper, allowing to design light and reliable components. For example, it can be a substitute to widely used stainless steel grades in equipment for public buildings and public transportation contexts.
