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. Following are
the most common used substrates and desired
properties for use with APS' process (this list
should only be used as a reference of the
process' capabilities and not a limit as to what it
can do):

Metals
steels, aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, zinc,
nickel
Corrosion resistance, abrasion/wear resistance,
impact resistance, lubricity, conductivity,
temperature resistance, color

Plastics
polyolefins, PVC, polycarbonate, ABS, nylon,
polyester, polystyrene, acrylic
Oxygen and moisture barrier, nonflammability,
scratch/abrasion resistance, increased
structural strength, UV resistance, adhesion to
other materials, flavor barrier

Rubbers
natural, synthetic
Chemical resistance, lubricity, UV/ozone
resistance, fuel barrier, conductivity, adhesion

Textiles
cotton, polyester, blends, nylon, fibers, yarns
Nonflammability, hydrophobicity, alteration of
"hand", anti-static, stain resistance, increased
dye receptivity

Glass/Ceramics
blown, fiber, sheet
Scratch/abrasion resistance, adhesion of water
based inks, decorative finishes, shatter
resistance, UV barrier, water repellency

Biopolymers
hair, skin, teeth
Slow release, increased comfort to skin,
hydrophobicity/hydrophilicity,
bactericidial/fungicidal properties

Wood/Paper
Bactericidal/fungicidal/mold resistance, moisture
barrier, nonflammability, increased tear strength,
adhesion to paints and inks, adhesion to other
materials
Molecular make up of substrates such as plastics, rubber, wood, paper,
glass, ceramics and metals need a method of activating substrates to
form sites for attachment of new functionalities.
Activity of functional groups on monomers and prepolymers and how to
combine them to provide new and unique properties on substrates.
Interaction of monomers and prepolymers and in linking them together
to form new polymer side chains.
Combining all reactive ingredients to formulate easy to apply, cost
effective surface treatments, additives and adhesives.

APS substrate activators have the unique capacity of removing active
hydrogens from substrates and initiating the growth of polymer chains
at that site. By removing these hydrogens, an electron is removed
forming a free radical. This free radical site needs an electron to
stabilize its state and will share the electron with the present monomers
forming the chemical bond.
