INNOVATION AND DEVELOPMENT
We are pioneers in the manufacture of Nano copper of origin
Organic copper nanoparticles provide widely proven and effective protection against pathogens, eliminating 99% of viruses and bacteria present on surfaces, including SARS COV2. This property was proven by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2008, showing that bacteria, fungi and viruses are killed within hours or minutes on a copper surface. Organic copper nanoparticles can be used in applications for the health industry, paints, cosmetics, electronics, among others. In addition, it is very important to point out that they are very efficient covering a large surface in relation to their volume.
