Fungicide / Bactericide* / Algaecide



“Metal ions, either alone or in complexes, have been used to disinfect fluids, solids and tissues for centuries. The ancient Greeks in the time of Hypocrates (400 BC) were the first to discover the sanitizing power of copper. Early American pioneers moving west across the continent put silver and copper coins in large wooden water casks to provide safe drinking water for their long journey. Copper is one of a relatively small group of metallic elements which are essential to human health. In contrast to the low sensitivity of human tissue (skin or other) to copper, microorganisms are extremely susceptible to copper”.
