Advanced Polymer Solutions  has fine-tuned
a unique process of
chemical grafting which
allows manufacturers to permanently add or
improve the performance of polyethylene 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,
molecularly bonded formulation is
permanent and cannot be leached, even under
severe conditions. Polyethylene grafting can be
added to the resin or used as a coating
improving it's properties. If your product is
polyethylene, chemical grafting can improve the
physical, mechanical, thermal, electrical,
chemical and gas permeation of polyethylene
