MD-Cu29 Antimicrobial Copper


Our Heritage

Our Heritage

It’s no surprise that MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper is being produced by Hussey Copper in Leetsdale, Pa. More than 165 years ago, a man named Dr. Curtis G. Hussey founded the first copper rolling company west of the Allegheny Mountains.

Dr. Hussey practiced medicine on the American frontier. And although Dr. Hussey was around before scientific testing proved the antimicrobial properties of copper, doctors and healers have been recorded using copper in medicine dating back to the Greek physician Hippocrates. Today, 98% of American medical students take the Hippocratic oath before they become physicians.

Now, in 2013, after 165 unbroken years of copper production, Hussey Copper is producing antimicrobial copper. EPA registered, MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper is laboratory tested to kill greater than 99.9% of bacteria within two hours and continue to kill 99% of bacteria* even after repeated contaminations1.

Take a look at some of the MD-Cu29 antimicrobial touch surfaces we are now offering for home use. Or, if you’re outfitting a commercial building or healthcare facility, we offer a wide range of custom engineering services and commercial products.
