Informed by the natural and synthetic materials that shape our world, OPT Industries helps customers design and manufacture a novel range of materials and products for the healthcare, automotive, interior, and consumer goods industries.
Please contact us if you would like a sample set of our materials.
Using a fixed set of molecular building blocks, nature fabricates a wide range of materials across length scales, from specks of pollen to the crown of a tree. Unifying nature’s hierarchical approach with computational design is the foundation of OPT’s material methodology.
Our 3D simulations capture nuanced differences that physical structures have at the micron scale. Infinite design options can be produced for our customers through quick parameter changes.
The flexibility to tailor these designs down to the micrometer leads to multiple functional benefits for our customers’ products. Adjustable properties such as capillary hydraulics, graded stiffness, and elasticity are just some of the functions available.
Our base portfolio is inspired by common material categories like feathers, fur, foam, and textiles. These classes can be further expanded or refined to fit an enormous range of specialized use cases.
Lofted surface patterning for optimal comfort or support.
Fractal branching for lightweight appearance.
Selective placement of soft-to-stiff cushioning.
Interwoven layers for tailored elasticity.
We work with globally-recognized brands across multiple industries to reinvent how materials can be designed and manufactured.
