Coronavirus: some good news!

Firstly, at this time, we would like to send you our best wishes and hope that your business fitness and personal health are holding up in these very uncertain circumstances.

There is not a lot of good news around (you may have noticed!) but one ray of sunshine is the fact that copper is one of the very best materials for killing off the Coronavirus (COVID-19.)

The virus can survive for only about 3-4 hours on copper.  By contrast, it can last 24 hours on cardboard and 3-4 days on plastic and steel.  This means that, by the time our copper reaches you, there should not be any virus on it.

It also means that any copper that you hold in storage will be free of the virus – assuming it has been there for more than four hours.

On a more general point, all our staff have been fully trained on the procedures necessary to minimise the risk of spreading the virus.  Like you, we are closely monitoring and following the Government guidelines for any employees still attending their workplace.  Our warehouse remains fully operational during this time, and we are working very closely with our supply chain to ensure minimum disruption to our customers.

This positive news about the properties of copper is not much, we know, but we hope that this crumb of comfort can lend a little bit of predictability to your planning, help you with your business processes and give a modicum of certainty to one aspect of your operations in, as we say, these very uncertain times.

As always, and particularly at the moment, please do not hesitate to contact your usual Advanced Alloys representative, if you have any questions or concerns at all, or if you would like to discuss any aspect of this matter in greater detail.

Thank you!
