ATG Business Travel Management has been named the official U.S. distributor of Copperline masks which feature a patented copper nano-technology to provide extra protection against viruses. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has registered copper as an antimicrobial metal that inhibits infections such as Escherichia coli, in-hospital infections, pneumococcus and allergies. ATG will process individual masks as well as bulk orders of up to 100,000 online.
In 2008, the EPA recognized copper as the first metallic antimicrobial agent. With EPA recognition, modern medicine has taken a more serious interest in the various properties of copper as an antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral agent. Copper fabric is used to reduce allergies and infections caused by asthma and dust mites through antibacterial, antimicrobial and self-sterilizing functions. The copper ingredient has low sensitivity to human tissues and exists in a non-soluble form. Orders can be processed and shipped within 7-10 business days.
