SaniTouch

Antimicrobial Copper Film

Protecting commonly used surfaces from the spread of infectious disease can be quite the challenge.

CR&A Custom’s antimicrobial copper film offers superior key attributes including advanced adhesive technology, layered product structure and improved durability during everyday use.

This type of protection is extremely important because viruses depend on host cells such as bacteria to replicate themselves.

How Does SaniTouch Work?

Step 1
Bacteria identifies copper ions on the film surface as essential nutrients and absorbs them into its cell.

Step 2
The absorbed copper ions penetrate the cell membrane, causing the cell to lose its nutrients and water.

Step 3
Copper ions pull the active oxygen through the hole punched in the cell membrane.

Step 4
This process damages the DNA inside the bacteria, which is eventually destroyed.

FaQ

For how long does the copper film retain its germ-killing effectiveness?

It will last as long as there are no scratches or damage to the surface. For maximum effectiveness, it’s recommended to replace it every 12 months.

Does the film alter the appearance of, say, a stainless steel table or door handle when removed after a 6-month period?

The film has a very slight copper tint to it, but it’s only noticeable when applied to a pure white background.

How often do you need to replace the film?

Every 12 months or upon visible damage to the surface.

Can this product be used to protect other printed signage?

Yes, it can be applied to printed flexible signs and to rigid signs as well.

How transparent is the film, if at all?

100% transparent.

Are there any surfaces to which this product cannot be applied?

Porous surfaces such as stucco, brick or textured dry walls.

What are antimicrobial surfaces? Why are they important?

Copper kills the bacteria that carry viruses, so by killing the bacteria, you are essentially killing viruses such as MERS, SARS, COVID, flu, etc., mitigating transmission.

How and how quickly does copper kill bacteria?

Bacteria identify copper as nutrients although it’s more like poison to them. Once bacteria come in contact with copper, they are usually dead within 15 minutes.
