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

Can my company patent the formulation once
it is developed?
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
Yes, we can manufacture the formulation in any
amount to meet your requirements.

When grafting onto metals is any heat source

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.
