Can Tokens Prevent the Spread of Germs? Anti-Microbial Effects of Copper Alloys Noted in Laboratory Studies


Cincinnati, OH –TokensDirect reports that copper  alloys (including brass, bronze, copper nickel, and nickel bronze - which are commonly used for arcade and amusements) have natural anti-microbial properties.  In controlled tests, 99.99% of dangerous bacteria were killed within 2 hours of contact.  

That represents good news for amusement faciltiy owners and workers as well as the many patrons that frequent them, because this natural germ suppression may control the spread of germs within arcades, family entertainment centers, batting cages, golf driving ranges, and other similar venues where tokens are used, the supplier stressed.

“These are the most common metals used for arcade and family entertainment centers “” said Osborne Coinage Director of Marketing David Blumenfeld, “and now we’re learning that they have inherent anti-microbial properties.  Tokens may actually help control the spread of germs, which is certainly welcome news for arcade owners, workers, and parents.”

Brass and bronze arcade and amusement tokens from TokensDirect are available in a range of sizes to suit any preference or need. Over 250,000 stock tokens are available for immediate shipment, and  custom designs with a company name, logo and marketing message can be shipped within 10 business days.
