The aim of this study is to evaluate the antimicrobial properties of wire-arc-sprayed Cu-Ni-Zn alloy coatings. The biocidal efficacy of the coatings is compared to that of stainless steel and sheet metal using Escherichia Coli as a contaminant. The influence of surface roughness on biocidal activity is investigated as well.
