How it Works
It disrupts bacterial cell membranes
Copper ions damage cell membranes and destroy the DNA and RNA of the microbe.
It interferes with proteins
that operate important functions that keeps the microbe cell alive.
It generates oxidative stress
on bacterial cells and creates hydrogen peroxide that kills the cell.
When a microbe contacts the copper
ions attack the pathogen preventing cell respiration and creating holes in the cell membrane or viral coating.

Advice on usage
Install VirusShield on every door handle, especially when the handle is touched repeatably. This way the risk of cross infection is greatly reduced. No virus or bacteria can survive on the film.
