Cupron’s Proprietary Fibers Granted Expanded Anti-Odor Claims
Friday, October 16, 2015
Cupron, creator of copper-based polymeric technologies, has received its fifth public health claim from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), expanding its portfolio of registered claims to include market leading anti-odor and freshness claims.
Cupron recently received the only EPA public health claims ever granted for fibers that kill the fungus that causes athlete’s foot and jock itch. With this most recent anti-odor claim Cupron continues to provide its apparel, footwear and hosiery partners the strongest claims available.
“It is gratifying to offer our partners in the branded consumer marketplace continually enhanced performance and related legally sanctioned marketing claims. Cupron continues to demonstrate unusual differentiation for our partners,” said Chris Andrews, CEO of Cupron.
Cupron’s growing portfolio of unique EPA anti-odor, antibacterial and anti-fungal claims is the result of the company’s ongoing research and development efforts on the properties of copper compounds. “In addition to being an excellent biocide and providing excellent antimicrobial activity, the use of copper as a catalyst is well known. Due to the proprietary compounds that Cupron utilizes we have managed to achieve unique performance,” added Dr. Vikram Kanmukhla, Director of Material Sciences for Cupron.
Cupron and its partners will set up a product stewardship program to support the responsible use of the technology and obtain feedback from users of Cupron-enhanced products.
