Additive Manufacturing

What we do

polySpectra makes functional materials for advanced additive manufacturing. We use light-activated catalysts to 3D print advanced functional materials. Our modular platform enables us to deliver materials with a broad spectrum of tailored properties from a single chemical system. We call this process functional lithography. polySpectra helps inventors, designers, and engineers make their ideas real.
