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 […]


Glass & Ceramics

Glass and Ceramic Coatings 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 […]


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. […]


Polycarbonate Chemical Resistance

Polycarbonate Chemical Resistance This formulation can be added to the resin or developed as a coating. Chemical grafting can increase the chemical resistance of polycarbonate against the following agents: solvents, acids, alkalis, salts, alcohols, hydrocarbons, nitriles and more If you manufacture a product which contains polycarbonate and are looking  to increase the chemical resistance of […]

Plastic Additives

Plastic Additives ​ In certain instances, the manufacturer wishes to compound the modification into the raw material in bulk form. Sometimes it is desirable for the substrate activator and monomer system to be incorporated into the matrix of the substrate. The plastic additive is to be blended with the pellets or resin and will be […]


FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions Q: Can chemical grafting impart desirable  properties of an expensive plastic onto a less  expensive plastic? A: Yes, the less expensive would then have the  properties of a more expensive plastic resulting in  tremendous cost savings. Q: Can chemical  grafting  work on any substrate? A: No, although we have a vast array […]
