Our EPA Journey

Our EPA Journey

Copper Armor™ received national EPA registration on October 4, 2021.  The next step is to work with each state to receive EPA registration at the state level. To the left is a map showcasing our progress.  Once a state has registered Copper Armor, it will become dark blue. We will keep this map up to date as we move through the state registrations.
