Most photopolymers suffer from very low working temperatures, they will deform when heated.
COR Alpha takes the heat like a pro.
Accidentally drop your beautiful, brittle part? Super frustrating, we know.
COR Alpha has incredible impact strength. We broke the first blender we tried this with:
Want to build something real? So do we.
COR Alpha is tough enough to take a beating. Watch our part crushed under almost 4 tons:
COR stands for Cyclic Olefin Resin, a new family of engineering-grade materials for additive manufacturing developed by polySpectra.
COR Alpha is just the beginning. We're releasing COR Alpha now to give the world a taste of what is possible with our new class of materials.
COR Alpha helps inventors, designers and engineers make their ideas real.
polySpectra was founded by Raymond Weitekamp to commercialize a discovery he made during his PhD research at Caltech. Raymond is a member of the founding cohort at Cyclotron Road, the groundbreaking hard technology innovation program at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. polySpectra is supported by the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office, the National Science Foundation, and the Molecular Foundry.
