While no reduction of coronavirus HCOV-299E is noted after 6 hours on steel, its concentration drops from the first minutes of contact with a Steriall® surface, made of antimicrobial copper alloy. It is eliminated at 98% after 1 hour, and 99.9% after 4 hour on a Steriall® surface.
These results from the FONDEREPHAR laboratory in Toulouse are consistent with international studies on SARS-COV-2, responsible for Covid19: this virus can persist for several days on steel and plastic surfaces, but is eliminated in a few hours by Copper.
The Steriall® solution is patented: it maintains the antimicrobial power of Copper over time to provide permanent protection.
