Techmer PM signs CertainT Trademark License Agreement with Applied DNA for PET Masterbatch Designating Product Integrity and Supply Chain Transparency (10/23/17)
Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. ("Applied DNA," "the Company," NASDAQ: APDN), has signed a new
CertainT® trademark license agreement with Techmer PM ("Techmer"), a respected producer of value
added colors and additives for the plastic and fiber industries, and a long standing customer of
Applied DNA's SigNature® T molecular tags. Techmer's mission is to provide its customers with the
best technical support in "problem solving designs for modifying the properties of base polymers." In
the complex world of sustainability, Techmer has embraced Applied DNA's CertainT platform as a
means to prove sustainable sources and ensure product integrity and supply chain transparency.
"Masterbatches" are concentrated additives used to impart qualities or colors to compounded
plastics. With the implementation of the CertainT trademark on its SigNature T molecularly tagged
PET or recycled PET masterbatch, Techmer is now able to illustrate to its customers, potential
customers and downstream supply chain partners the ability to forensically interrogate its high
quality source material in all phases of the manufacturing process - from source masterbatch pellet
to the end product, allowing Techmer to differentiate itself in a dynamic market.
John Manuck, CEO, Chairman and founder of Techmer stated, "Innovation through collaboration
enables our company to partner with state of the art companies such as Applied DNA. A successful
21st century company must be adept at applying new technology through the supply train.
Leveraging new ideas and applying design concepts are vital to future growth. Customers want to
know where their products were designed and manufactured, and we want to be at the forefront in
reliably providing that information."
"Our new CertainT collaboration with Techmer through increased use of our tag in their masterbatch
programs will immediately help their customers," said Dr. James Hayward, President and CEO of
Applied DNA. "By expanding our existing relationship to include trademark licensing, Techmer
highlights the growing awareness and adoption of our CertainT platform with a public-facing
trademark that stands for authenticity, transparency and performance."
Applied DNA Sciences and Techmer will be co-presenting at the Synthetic Yarn Fibers Association
Fall Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina on October 27, 2017.
