Cupron Medical Textiles
The fibers in Cupron Medical Textiles are permanently embedded with copper during manufacturing. The unique color is caused by the copper content in the fabric and provides a strong visual indicator as to which linens are antimicrobial and which are not.
Cupron Medical Textiles do not need to be processed differently, but to aid the laundry sorting process at the plant we recommend using separate colored bags for soiled white and Cupron linens. Cupron can be laundered in either batch or tunnel washers with normal industrial detergents and bleaches including peracetic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and chlorine. Cupron provides recommended wash instructions; the only change is that fabric softener should not be used.
Cupron’s linens are more durable than regular white linens. As a result, people get >80% more servings from Cupron than regular white linens.
Unlike laundry additives or topically applied antimicrobials, Cupron’s antimicrobial copper does not wash off or wear off over time due to the embedded nature of the technology. Antimicrobial testing shows that Cupron Medical Textiles retain 99.9% effi cacy during the life of the product.
Cupron Medical Textiles have been in use for over 2 million patient days without any reported adverse events due to copper.
Because copper is an element that is found in many foods and multivitamins, true copper allergies are extremely rare. Many people who believe they have a copper allergy have had reactions to copper alloys containing nickel, which Cupron linens do not. There are two rare conditions related to copper metabolism, Wilson’s disease and Menkes syndrome, and these are flagged on admission.
No – The Cupron Reusable Face Mask is not an N95 or N95-equivalent. It does not offer protection from airborne particulates. It is not intended as a substitute product for respirators. It is not recommended for use in a surgical setting or where significant exposure to liquid, bodily or other hazardous fluids is expected. The face mask is not recommended for use in a clinical setting where the infection risk level through inhalation exposure is high or in the presence of a high intensity heat source or flammable gas. CDC guidelines recommend that healthcare professionals use respirators, if available, rather than face masks, when treating patients with known or suspected COVID 19.
There are many applications as to where CMT can be used. Due to its antimicrobial properties, they could be used at hospitals, clinics, age-care centers, spas, beauty salon and even at home.
