Hussey Copper, with support from Lynn Tilton and Patriarch Partners, launches a new line of home improvement products that fight bacteria known to lurk on surfaces. This is the first time antimicrobial solid-surface items are available at the retail level. Bathroom sinks, wall plates, push/pull plates, cabinet pulls and tile are now available in a variety of sizes, styles and finishes using Hussey Copper's MD-Cu29.
"In our efforts to support and sustain American industry, we continue to marry technology and manufacturing through innovation of product and process. At Hussey, we are vertically integrated from raw material to end product, offering American consumers affordable antimicrobial products for the home," says Lynn Tilton, owner of Hussey Copper.
The product line, available for spring's home improvement season, is made from Hussey Copper's EPA-registered MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper. Touch surfaces made with MD-Cu29 kill greater than 99.9 percent of bacteria within two hours and kill more than 99 percent of bacteria* even after repeated contamination.
Referencing EPA-approved test protocols and other validated studies, Hussey Copper developed MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper touch surfaces for commercial, home and healthcare use. Hussey Copper is working with several public and healthcare institutions to install MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper touch surfaces.
MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper products can be easily researched and purchased online at mdcu29.com, enabling customers to buy directly and cost-effectively from the largest copper processor in North America. Retail stores will also soon stock the items.
