APS Elastomers Helps Inventors/ Entrepreneurs Develop Their Final Product

Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) supplier, APS Elastomers has worked with molders, inventors and entrepreneurs for years; helping them choose the proper material, find cost-effective solutions, conceptualize, develop and commercialize elastomer-based products.  “We receive numerous inquiries from small companies, inventors, and independent molders seeking information regarding proper material selection - or occasionally, an alternative to a material they are using that may be better suited for the product they are developing”, says Stephane Morin, owner of APS Elastomers. 

In addition to assisting in product development, APS Elastomers will evaluate material’s performance, and if needed, rectify deficiencies.  “It’s exciting to see the end products created from our TPEs”, says Morin. Recent projects include fishing lures, wheelchair rim grips, and target stand brackets. “We welcome the opportunity to discuss projects and we embrace the challenge of developing new products or enhancing existing ones” adds Morin.
