Scratch resistance and
adhesion of ink onto glass
CO2 barrier onto PET
Abrasion Resistance
Can Chemical Grafting impart desirable properties of an
expensive plastic onto a less expensive plastic?
Yes, the less expensive would then have the properties of a
more expensive plastic resulting in tremendous cost saving.

Can Chemical Grafting work on any substrate?
No, although we have a vast array of activation monomers,
they cannot activate every substrate. Email us @ for a complete list of
substrates which cannot be grafted.

Can my company patent the formulation once it is
Yes, you will own the formulation, we will assist in obtaining
your patent.

Are the formulations safe?
Yes, The ingredients in all APS formulations will be
completely safe, can be water based in many cases, and will
conform to OSHA, EPA and, if required, FDA guidelines.

Can a chemically grafted formulation be used to attach two
different types of plastic?
Yes, in this case two different types of monomers will be used
to activate the substrate. This application would be used as a
coating between the two substrates.

Can the formulation be added to ink?
Yes to improve adhesion to various substrates, glass,
textiles, etc. Also to impart desirable properties into the ink
such as scratch resistance.

Once developed can Advanced Polymer Solutions
manufacture the coating or additive?
Yes, we can manufacture the formulation in any amount to
meet your requirements.

When grafting onto metals is any heat source required?
No, our activation monomers will bond to the metal forming a
covalent bond.

What We Do:  Providing new and unique formulations
based on a specialized patented molecular bonding
method called chemical grafting. In the form of
coatings, additives and adhesives, our chemical
grafting will permanently attach new functionalities to
any material. Each project is performed on an
individual basis, tailored to the specific needs unique
to each company's product(s) and industry. Following
are some of the substrates we work with.
