Manufacturing

The chemically grafted coatings, additives, and adhesives are unique and are NOT “off-the-shelf” formulations that cannot be found elsewhere. Manufacturing of formulations are supervised by PhD professionals. The aim of each project is to consistently manufacture the custom tailored formulation at desired quantities from 5 to 45,000 gallons. APS has a 10,000 sq. ft., fully […]


Chemical Grafting

APS unique chemical grafting process results in properties being permanently attached to the substrate with the use of a specialized substrate activator and monomer system. The following are the most commonly used substrates and desired properties for use with APS process application methods. Most Common Application Methods This is only a reference list of the […]


Textiles

Textile  Coatings and Additives Conventional coatings adhere to materials by simple mechanical forces that will be easily broken causing peeling or delamination. This is not the case with chemical grafting  since the attachment of the coating is accomplished by forming  A covalent bond between the substrate and the monomers via the substrate activator. The chemical […]


Substrates

Grafted Coatings Coatings are applied on the surface of substrates to improve functional properties and durability. Conventional coatings need extensive surface preparation for adhesion and need to build up thickness for performance. Such is not the case with APS’ grafted coating formulations. Most  of APS’ coatings can be applied in one step with no or […]


Polyurethane Additives

Application Methods Polyurethane additives can be added to the resin or used as a coating improving it’s properties. If your product is polyurethane, chemical grafting can improve the physical, mechanical, thermal, electrical, chemical and gas permeation of polyurethane. ​ Coatings are applied on the surface of substrates to improve functional properties and durability. Conventional coatings […]


Polypropylene Additives

Application Methods Polypropylene additives can be added to the resin or used as a coating improving it’s properties. If your product is polypropylene, chemical grafting can improve the physical, mechanical, thermal, electrical, chemical and gas permeation of polypropylene. ​ Coatings are applied on the surface of substrates to improve functional properties and durability. Conventional coatings […]


Polyethylene Additives

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. […]


Polystyrene Flame Resistance

If you manufacture a product which contains polystyrene and are looking  to increase the chemical resistance of your  product  in order to give you a  competitive edge then contact  Advanced Polymer Solutions regarding  our patented  chemical process we will develop a customized  formulation based upon your flame resistance specifications. ​ Once we develop and thoroughly test […]


Polycarbonate Chemical Resistance
