The EPA has registered MicroGuard antimicrobial alloys for sale with public health claims. The registration acknowledges that products made of MicroGuard metals can kill harmful bacteria* responsible for causing millions of infections each year.

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on the results of extensive efficacy testing, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has registered MicroGuard(TM) antimicrobial alloys for sale with public health claims. When used as directed, MicroGuard touch surfaces kill greater than 99.9% of disease causing bacteria* including Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a superbug responsible for over 94,000 hospital-acquired infections each year.

Products made of MicroGuard antibacterial materials are the first registered products available for immediate sale. MicroGuard materials and component hardware are approved for touch surfaces in hospitals, schools, commercial buildings, and homes. Some of the EPA approved applications include:
