A New Color Paradigm
The Possibilities Are Endless
Cypris' Proprietary Palette: Cypris Materials' coating platform provides industry-leading companies with the ability to differentiate their brand and product(s) through new colors. Cypris' platform uses a patented process to generate a palette of colors that is simply unachievable with conventional color.
Simplified, Environmentally Friendly Color: Cypris' color is eco-friendly and produced with sustainability in mind. The social, environmental, and health impacts that have long been associated with the colorant industry are eliminated with Cypris Materials' structural color coatings by removing the need for a "classic" colorant.
The Market(s): Our team is developing structural color for areas where eye catching colors, and a premium product finish is a must. We are innovating in applications including industrial inkjet printing, cosmetics (nail polish), consumer electronics, packaging, and automotive.
The Tech: Our platform, backed by 11 patents, enables a wide range of possibilities from the production of paintable nano-structured coatings from synthetic polymers, employing solution deposited brush block copolymers capable of rapid self-assembly, achieving highly reflective structures in minutes under ambient conditions.
Color Without Pigments, Dyes, Metals or Expensive Engineering Processes
Two Materials Replace Thousands of Pigments and Dyes
Our vision is to enable structural color as a powerful means for designers and product developers to differentiate their products. Cypris Materials' product replaces the thousands of pigments and dyes needed to achieve a broad color gamut with two materials.
An example of the possibilities enabled by our technology can be seen in printing, where the standard 4-process color gamut is based on CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and key or black) and can achieve roughly 30% of what the eye can see. A computer screen however uses a simpler 3-process RGB gamut (red, green, blue) and can access roughly 70% of what the eye can see – a 133% increase in color from fewer "inputs". Cypris Materials has developed the first color platform that achieves additive color mixing, the same physics behind RGB, to enable beautiful, durable, and vivid high chroma colors that make your products pop - all with less manufacturing, material, and formulation hassle.
Capturing Nature's Color
Spray Gun - Aerosol Can - Paint Brush - Print Head
Cypris Materials' structural color is easily translated to spray guns, aerosol cans, printers, or paint brushes, and, it's fun to watch dry.
Simplified, Safe Formulations
Eliminating Toxic Ingredients
Cypris' coating design creates color without the use of pigments or dyes and broadens the available color palette. From cosmetics to electronics to packaging, Cypris provides high-chroma coatings that are both striking and safe.
Tested in the Real World
We collaborate with customers to ensure our coatings provide the durability and weather-ability required for industrial and consumer applications. Cypris specializes in accelerated weathering testing - including adhesion, hardness, water/humidity resistance, and UV durability. Reach out to see if our color meets your needs.
