3D-Printed Copper Cladding Battles Virus That Causes COVID-19

April 20, 2020

Citing studies showing that copper rapidly kills SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 disease, Spee3D has introduced Activat3D copper and a process to clad it to existing parts via the company’s printers. This discovery has led to a renewed interest in employing copper fixtures and fittings in communal areas, according to Spee3D officials who note that copper, an attractive architectural material, kills bacteria, yeasts and viruses rapidly on contact by breaking down the cell wall and destroying the genome.
