Frequently Asked Questions

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.

All information is strictly confidential, however prior
to releasing any information regarding your project
to us, APS will sign a non disclosure agreement.
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.
Advanced Polymer Solutions has been involved in chemical grafting
for 35 years, providing clients with company-tailored product solutions
that improves their productivity, performance, sustainability, and
competitive advantage. Each formulation is tailored by our
scientist to meet each clients specifications. Our end aim is to
manufacture the formulation for you on a full scale basis.

This is how we ensure our long-term business success with chemical
grafted solutions for almost all sectors of industry.

APS facility
Advanced Polymer Solutions custom tailored formulations are designed to replace your current solvent based or other toxic based coating or adhesive with an Eco - Friendly water based formulation without sacrificing any inherent characteristics. In addition APS can enhance an existing coating or formulation by chemically grafting additional barrier properties into the formulation forming a covalent bond with the substrate. We also develop new formulations based upon our clients specifications. No capital investment on equipment is needed as the formulation will comply with your current application methods, it can be sprayed, rolled, dipped etc based upon your specifications. There is virtually no down time as the new chemically grafted formulation replaces the old solvent based coating, creating a safe environment throughout your facility while at the same time achieving a much superior chemical bond with your substrate. No heat is required for the reaction to take place but if dying time is a concern a temperature of 150F will reduce the dying time. Thus providing a cost effective solution.
