Copper - a Safe Bet for Your Home!

This Saturday morning our WDBO In the House team will be joined by Adam Estelle, project engineer with the Copper Development Association (CDA), the world’s foremost resource on copper and copper alloy applications, to discuss the benefits of antimicrobial copper-alloy surfaces.

CDA is a U.S-based, not-for-profit association of the global copper industry, influencing the use of copper and copper alloys through research, development and education, as well as technical and end-user support. CDA is committed to promoting the proper use of copper materials in sustainable, efficient applications for business, industry and the home.

Copper alloys containing at least 60% copper are considered antimicrobial and are the only solid touch surface material clinically tested and registered with the EPA - and whose US promoters are allowed to make public health claims. Antimicrobial copper is the most effective antimicrobial touch surface material, killing more than 99.9% of six disease causing bacteria within two hours of exposure.

Copper has a long history in the home; it has been used as a material for kitchen sinks, plumbing, fixtures and even cookware for centuries. As a result, its benefits are well established and agreed upon by consumers and home improvement professionals. Although its finish will change over time, copper is aesthetically pleasing, versatile and will serve your home well for many years.
