DAZZEON will definitely be your best business partnter and solution with full technical supports and sharing experiences.
Cupric Ion is a non-toxic element and will not harm our health!
Copper (Cu), an essential nutrient for the body and the third most abundant trace element in the human body (right after iron and zinc), not only facilitates the process of metabolism but also does not cause skin irritation or hypersensitivity. Copper acts as a catalyst of intracellular oxidation and shows anti-bacterial and anti-viral activities.
Historical proves of using Cupric ion:
Earlier in Ancient Egypt and Greece times, people already discovered the benefits of Cupric ion such as healing, anti-bateria and anti-inflammatory. Copper has been used as a medicine for thousands of years including the treatment of chest wounds and the purifying of drinking water.
According to a new study published at the first International Conference on Prevention and Infection Control held by the World Health Organization (WTO) in Switzerland, the use of antibacterial copper coatings in hospitals can help to reduce the risk of hospital-acquired infections (HAI) up to 40%, and be effective to kill 97% of bacteria, many viruses and fungal pathogens.
In 2009, Professor Bilkiville from the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom published a research report, pointing out that copper can inhibit the Influenza A virus subtype H1N1. After 6 hours of obervations, almost no surviving influenza virus can be found on the copper surface; As a comparion, there are still 500,000 virions remaining on the stainless surface after the same period. In the same year, a test by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) showed that under room temperature, the copper alloy killed 99.9% of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) on its surface within two hours.
Antibacterial Cupric Ion Principles:
In the presence of water, the cupric ion (Cu2+) generated can enter the bacteria cell through passes plasma. Being a heavy metal, it denatures certain enzymes and disturbs electrolyte balance, stereo metric structure of nucleic acid and osmotic pressure, which is detrimental to bacterial metabolism and survival.
