In today’s changing marketplace the safety and peace of mind of your patrons is critical. With recent releases from the CDC and other organizations about the shelf life of the coronavirus lasting as long as 72 hours on stainless steel and plastic surfaces the Pure Pour is a safe alternative to those metal and plastic pour spouts.
Pure Pour’s compound breakdown is a thermoplastic vulcanizate and is fully cross linked with an EPDM/PP compound. This product provides the performance of vulcanized rubber. Cold resistant down to -76˚ and as high as 266˚. It has high antimicrobial properties, dishwasher safe and high resistance to cleaning solvents. We now sterilize our pour spouts before shipping them out.
The Pure Pour is proudly made in America and will last 3 times as long as the current metal ones on the market. The Pure Pour also never leaks, which in this new economy is important when every ounce counts when it comes to liquor profits while reducing inventory losses due to faulty pour spouts.
It's possible that a person can be infected with the virus by touching a contaminated surface or object, "then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes," according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). What's more, SARS-CoV-2 RNA was found on "a variety of surfaces" in cabins of both symptomatic and asymptomatic people who were infected with COVID-19 on the Diamond Princess cruise ship, up to 17 days after the passengers disembarked.
A novel human coronavirus that is now named severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (formerly called HCoV-19) emerged in Wuhan, China, in late 2019 and is now causing a pandemic.
We analyzed the aerosol and surface stability of SARS-CoV-2 and compared it with SARS-CoV-1, the most closely related human coronavirus.Our data consisted of 10 experimental conditions involving two viruses (SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV-1) in five environmental conditions (aerosols, plastic, stainless steel, copper, and card-board). SARS-CoV-2 was more stable on plastic and stainless steel than on copper and cardboard, and viable virus was detected up to 72 hours after application to these surfaces.

New coronavirus stable for hours on surfaces
The virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is stable for several hours to days in aerosols and on surfaces, according to a new study from National Institutes of Health, CDC, UCLA and Princeton University scientists in The New England Journal of Medicine. The scientists found that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was detectable in aerosols for up to three hours, up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel. The results provide key information about the stability of SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19 disease, and suggests that people may acquire the virus through the air and after touching contaminated objects.
