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 savings. 

Can chemical  grafting  work on any substrate? 

No, although we have a vast array of activation  monomers, they cannot activate every substrate.  Email us @ info@advancedpolymersolutions.com  for a complete list of substrates which can not be  grafted

Can my company patent the formulation once ?

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, 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 the formulation be added to ink? 

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. 

Once developed can Advanced Polymer  Solutions manufacture the coating or  additive? 

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. 

When grafting onto metals is any heat source  required? 

  • No, our activation monomers will bond to the metal  forming a covalent bond.

  • All information is strictly confidential, however prior to releasing any information regarding your project  to us, APS will sign a non-disclosure agreement.
