Advanced Polymer Solutions has fine-tuned a unique process of chemical grafting which allows manufacturers to permanently add or improve the performance of polycarbonate while retaining its existing characteristics.
This process involves substrate activation and the attachment and polymerization of monomers that contribute the desired properties onto the backbone of the substrate using safe, effective organic chemicals. Because a covalent bond is formed, the molecularly bonded formulation is permanent and cannot be leached, even under severe conditions.
Polycarbonate grafting can be added to the resin or used as a coating improving its properties. If your product is polycarbonate, chemical grafting can improve the physical, mechanical, thermal, electrical, chemical, and gas permeation of polycarbonate.
APS chemists have extensive experience in bonding the same or different substrates together. Materials that are difficult to adhere to are effectively bonded with APS' process. Again, no or minimal surface chemical attachment of one substrate to the other. Consequently, substrate failure will occur before adhesion failure. In addition, if two substrates with different coefficients of thermal expansion are bonded, and APS developed adhesive's bonding action will not be affected. This is not the case with conventional adhesives which cannot withstand the varying expansion and contraction of different substrates.
Application of all APS chemical grafting formulations can apply at ambient temperatures and normal atmospheric conditions.
