• USE IT to press elevator buttons and gas station keypad buttons
• BRASS BACTERIOSTATIC PROPERTIES have resulted in its use in bathroom fixtures and healthcare facilities. Old buildings have brass door knobs not only because brass handles look beautiful but also because they can prevent frequently touched surfaces from serving as microbe collectors.
• BRASS IS AN ALLOY of COPPER AND ZINC – no chemicals, feels good to the touch

• BRASS SURFACE DELIVER CONTINUOUS AND ONGOING ANTIBACTERIAL ACTION, remaining effective in killing greater than 90% of bacteria within two hours.
• “All nine brasses tested were almost completely bactericidal (over 99.9% kill rate) at 20 °C within 60–270 minutes. Many brasses were almost completely bactericidal at 4 °C within 180–360 minutes.” – Wikipedia quote
• EPA registration number for copper alloys 82012-6 (~60% Copper and ~40% Zink)
