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 14 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 and exclusive color gamut with only 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.
