APT, the sole manufacturer to produce its products all over the world, started its coating division in 2012 and led the way by installing the first Industrial Coating Line in the United States designed and dedicated only to artificial turf. While APT enjoys nearly fifty years of concentrated PU chemistry, international experts were busy brainstorming about how to reach the next level of PU for turf coating. The outcome is the patent pending TuftGuard™ coating, which allows turf to exceed a ten-pound tuft bind thanks in part to our specialized equipment.
"To date, we have already the most durable yarns in monofilaments and fibrillated tapes available on the market," says Dr. Axel Hinrichs, CEO of APT Polytex. "TuftGuard™ is now considered the frontrunner for coating, as well, giving our completely in-house crafted turf the world wide longest lifecycle".
The achievements of APT as part of the SportGroup, a worldwide market leader of outdoor sport and recreational surface systems, speak for themselves by using state of the art products and materials that are safe and healthy as well as efficient and economic.
