Copper Antimicrobial Laminate

You can now protect your vending machines from spreading viruses & germs!

 

We are pleased to announce this revolutionary item, our Copper Antimicrobial Laminate sheets for your vending machine push button and touch screens.
Antimicrobial Copper is inherently able to kill bacteria and the coronavirus on site within minutes of contact with the Copper material.*

 

How it works:

  • Bacteria recognizes the copper ion on the copper surface as an essential nutrient, so the bacteria absorb it into the cell.

  • The absorbed copper ion penetrates the cell membrane, so the cell loses significant nutrients and water.

  • Copper ion pulls the active oxygen ROS (Reactive oxygen species) through the penetrated hole of the cell membrane

  • Bacteria gets serious prevention for respiratory and metabolic activity, which leads to complete extinction. Note: The hand-infected germs (bacteria) can form a great environment for virus to self-replicate.

Antimicrobial activity of copper:

  • Some common viruses have no vaccine available.  Influenza mutates so rapidly that it is difficult for vaccines to keep up.  Copper surfaces wipe them out.

  • However, coronavirus is deactivated in the Copper surface within minutes and Copper destroys the body structure and genome of the virus.

  • According to the research, including copper and copper alloy, ‘antimicrobial copper’ rapidly deactivated the coronavirus within minutes when the coronavirus touches the surface of it.

Characteristics of Antimicrobial film:

  • The antimicrobial effect is everlasting
    (Please change the product depending on the damage of the film, or every 45-60 days.)

  • Semi-permanent period of use.

  • Harmless to the environment.

  • Harmless to humans.

We have our standard size which fits almost every vending machine, except AP 111/112/113 series and National 180/181.
Those are also available, as well as Avanti Micromarkets.  You may have to trim down the sheet with a utility knife for some models.
The adhesive material sticks directly to the section button or touch screen allowing your customers to make their selections while staying safe!

These sheets prevent damage to your machine from most chemicals that are sprayed to disinfect that would otherwise damage the selection membranes!
