3D-printed Activat3D copper from Spee3D kills SARS-CoV-2 virus on contact surfaces

Spee3D has developed and tested a way to quickly 3D-print antimicrobial copper onto metal surfaces.

 .

Laboratory tests have shown that touch surfaces modified by this process “contact kills” 96% of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in two hours. The process, known as Activat3D copper, has been developed by modifying the company’s 3D printing technology, using new algorithms for controlling its metal printers to allow existing metal parts to be coated with copper.
