Theoretically i might be able to split the pattern three patterns for each of the three plastics it can be applied to is that advisable or should i just patent all three in one pad well you know of course um my hunch is that you’re going to protect those three different plastics in one invention if what you come up with is is the detecting the breakdown of plastics in general and you’ve got three different types of applications of that system or method or process that is going to be applicable to certainly those three and maybe there’s more so the common denominator whatever that secret process or method or detection is in those plastics that process can be applied to you know many different materials and maybe even beyond plastic so i think doing make sure you do quality research up front to make sure that you’re thinking about all different ways it could be applied all different types of plastics that your your method might be useful for and claiming all of them in one
