METALgrommets.com offers ClipsShop’s solid brass self-piercing grommets with a copper finish in 12 different sizes. As you may know, copper has many health benefits. Importantly, copper is naturally an anti-microbial material. Bacteria like E. coli, viral infections like influenza, super-bugs like MRSA, or even coronaviruses can live for up to four days or longer when they land on most surfaces. For example, hard surfaces like stainless steel, iron and plastics will not stop viruses or bacteria from growing. But when they land on copper and alloys like brass, they begin to die within minutes and are undetectable within hours.
Furthermore, when a virus is on a copper surface, the copper ions penetrate through the cell walls like bullets. The copper doesn’t just kill these pathogens, it destroys them. In fact, the copper ions get right down to the nucleic acids or reproductive blueprints.
The American Society for Microbiology shared important information in a recent report. Among other things, the ASM report stated: “Exposure to copper is destroying the viral genomes and irreversibly affected virus morphology, including disintegration of envelope and dispersal of surface spikes. Consequently, copper alloy surfaces could be employed in communal areas and at any mass gatherings to help reduce transmission of respiratory viruses from contaminated surfaces and protect the public health.“
Like other ClipsShop grommets, the copper finish is applied to solid brass non-rusting metal. Additionally, the copper grommets are self-piercing on most materials.
