About Antimicrobial Copper CuLEAN® Strength Equipment
What is Antimicrobial Copper CuLEAN® by CuVerro®?
Many ancient cultures, including the Egyptians, Romans and Greeks, recognized the inherent antimicrobial properties of copper. Copper-lined vessels were used to sterilize drinking water. Copper compounds were used to treat wounds and infections.
With the recent outbreaks of untreatable infections including MRSA, which is often traced back to the work out facility, Black Iron Strength® took the ancient technology of copper and applied it to strength equipment. With this patented technology, Black Iron Strength® is the only equipment manufacturer to offer to offer free weight equipment with copper touch points. Copper surfaces by CuVerro® has been shown to kill more than 99% of bacteria within two hours of contact. Given that bacteria can survive on surfaces for months, Black Iron Strength® prefers to use CuLEAN® Antimicrobial Copper on their products and equipment. It is simply the best material for all surfaces as bacteria cannot thrive or survive on it.

Antimicrobial Copper CuLEAN® Products fight MRSA
- More than half of athletic trainers surveyed in a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said they have treated an athlete with a skin infection caused by MRSA.1
- According to the CDC, the ‘superbug’ MRSA is typically spread from person to person through direct skin contact, or contact with shared items or surfaces, such as weight training equipment.
- Black Iron Strength® EPA-registered CuLEAN® antimicrobial copper gripping surfaces by CuVerro® kills MRSA*, along with other infectious bacteria.*
*Laboratory testing demonstrates effective antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Escherichia coli 0157:H7, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). When cleaned regularly, CuVerro® surfaces kill more than 99.9% of bacteria within two hours of exposure and continue killing more than 99% of bacteria, even after repeated contamination.
