LOS ANGELES, CA — AK Steel will donate steel coated with AgION™ antimicrobial compound for City of Hope’s Helford Clinical Research Hospital, currently under construction in Duarte, CA. The coated steel will be used in the facility’s air handling ductwork and may have other potential applications such as stainless steel door hardware, push plates, and light switch plates.

“City of Hope is a true pioneer in the treatment of life-threatening diseases,” said Richard M. Wardrop, Jr., chairman and chief executive officer of AK Steel. “This new facility will benefit from the added measure of cleanliness provided by AK Steel’s antimicrobial-coated steel. The steels’ ability to inhibit the growth of destructive microbes in air-handling ductwork is of particular benefit in a health care environment.”
