Color Like None Other
Cypris Materials, Inc. has harnessed the transformative power of structural color - a method of producing color that has evolved over millions of years.
What We Do
Cypris Materials' coating platform helps industry-leading companies and individuals redefine the capabilities of color. Our polymers, backed by 11 patents, unlock new colors and effects that can only be achieved through our paint. Cypris’ materials enable a new paradigm of obtaining the first safe and sustainable color without the need for toxic pigments and dyes.
Who We Are
Cypris Materials, Inc. began in Berkeley, CA after co-founders Matt Ryan and Ryan Pearson were awarded Activate Fellowships to join the Cyclotron Road program at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The core technology was invented in the Caltech lab of co-founder and Nobel Laureate Bob Grubbs. Prior to Cypris, co-founders Garret Miyake and Raymond Weitekamp were awarded a $5M grant from ARPA-E to apply the paintable photonics platform towards improving building energy-efficiency.
