APT utilizes its ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System to constantly review and improve its business procedures.



Founded in 1994, the staple products of APT have traditionally been recreational coatings such as those for tracks and tennis courts, protective coatings to reduce wear on buildings and structures. However, custom-made products can be designed and manufactured to suit the needs of special cases. From its creation, APT has realized the importance of easy-to-maintain, high-quality products. As time went on, more and more environmentally-safe components were integrated into product manufacture to also reduce environmental impact as much as possible. Today, APT is ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System certified along with ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management, and utilizes recyclable and renewable materials in its production.

Our full time Research & Development and Quality Control labs are staffed with full time technicians, chemists and PhD’s ready to assist in providing solutions to your polyurethane needs. What can we make for you?
