Advanced Polymer Solutions was formed by four technical professionals educated
and experienced in polymer and organic chemistry, research and development and
engineering. As a result, APS offers over 75 years of combined expertise in offering
custom solutions to manufacturers in the areas of product improvement and high
impact commercialization solutions to reduce costs and eliminate hazardous

APS is not and has never been affiliated with any other corporation or entity.
It is a privately held corporation whose end aim is full scale manufacture of the
formulation for its clients.

APS' core business is in 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

Utilizing APS' custom formulation process will result in more superior performance
and longer life of your products providing your company with a competitive edge.
Examples of industries served include automotive, medical, packaging, equipment,
pharmaceutical, printing, electronics and many more.
The ability to recognize the technical needs of small, medium and large
corporations has significantly and successfully contributed to APS' productive
relationships with a large variety of organizations.

Why Advanced Polymer Solutions
For R&D?
APS' core business is to develop and manufacture custom formulations for product
and commercialization improvements and cost reductions, therefore, is the ultimate
technical resource for manufacturers. Using this innovative project approach,
companies can take advantage of:
  • APS' assistance in analyzing and defining problems through their
    understanding of the chemical and physical basics of all materials and how
    they behave and interact;
  • APS' unique patented molecular bonding method not offered by other
    companies and unavailable in house;
  • APS' individually tailored approach to the most effective solution for each
    client (not available at raw material suppliers);
  • APS' collaberation with clients to form a cooperation that ensure the best
    results and most acceptable implementation of the chemical grafting
  • Ability to concentrate on your core products and business activities;
  • Exclusive, patentable formulation for you to gain a competitive edge over
    competition with a more superior performing products and decreased costs;
  • Increased sales and ability to market your product into broader areas.

    supervised by a Ph.D. in polymer chemistry
    to ensure each shipment is quality controlled.

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
Product Enhancement:
APS' unique chemical grafting process results in
properties being permanently attached to the substrate
with the use of a specialized substrate activator and
monomer system.
Metals: steels, aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, zinc, nickel, etc.
Corrosion resistance, abrasion/wear resistance, impact resistance, lubricity,
conductivity, temperature resistance, color, etc.

Plastics: polyolefins, PVC, polycarbonate, ABS, nylon, polyester, polystyrene,
acrylic, etc.
Oxygen and moisture barrier, nonflammability, scratch/abrasion resistance,
increased structural strength, UV resistance, adhesion to other materials, flavor

Textiles cotton, polyester, blends, nylon, fibers, yarns, etc.
Nonflammability, hydrophobicity, alteration of "hand", anti-static, stain resistance,
increased dye receptivity,

Biopolymers: hair, skin, teeth, slow release, increased comfort to skin,
hydrophobicity/hydrophilicity, bactericidial/fungicidal properties

Additional substrates include: Rubber, Glass/Ceramics, Wood/Paper and more.
