The Specialists for Fluoropolymers

At the beginning of 2017, APT Advanced Polymer Tubing GmbH from Neuss became part of the Masterflex Group. The company specializes in smooth and heat-shrinkable tubing made of fully or partially fluorinated plastics (fluoropolymers). APT tubing can be used permanently at temperatures ranging from minus 200 to plus 260 degrees Celsius. In addition, they are resistant to many chemicals used in industrial processes.

APT products owe these special capabilities to the processed raw materials FEP, PFA and PTFE. These fluoroplastics require very special processing know-how and high-quality machinery designed for them.
