RIT slurry blasted campus door pulls using the Wet Tech Process. “RIT has ... demonstrated that it can inhibit ... the COVID-19 virus.”

PR9.NET September 07, 2020 - Rochester Institute of Technology researchers supporting the response to the COVID-19 outbreak in New York state learned of a fascinating property of copper and its alloys. “They act to kill bacteria and viruses on surfaces,” said Gerry Hurley....
When the copper content was verified, the team cleaned the handles using a specialized slurry blast machine from Wet Technologies Inc., whose president and founder is RIT alumnus Frederick Greis. This low-pressure, high volume, high concentration, closed loop wet blast system restores surfaces to ‘like new’ condition. “RIT has really run with the technology and the work has demonstrated that it can inhibit the life of the COVID-19 virus,” Greis said. “Those handles see a lot of human contact as students move between classes, the library and other buildings.”
