APS Advanced-Polymers-Solution is an Italian company, which specialises in the design and manufacture of components made of advanced engineering plastics and high-performance composites (PP-PMMA-PA-POM-PBT-PC-PVDF-ULTEM-PPSU-PEEK) through the extrusion process.
Our extruded profiles and/or tubes are particularly used in the following industries: automotive, aerospace, naval, railway, food, and construction packaging, oil, household and electronic appliances, and heavy-duty applications. Based on the requirements, our products can resist both high and low temperatures (-120+300 °C), shocks, cuts, wear, contact with solvents, acids, and hydrocarbons. They are also suitable for being used in radioactive environments or electrically and/or thermally conductive or insulating ones. Moreover, our products can be suitable for contact with foods, and their stiffness and modulus values make them an excellent alternative to metals in structural applications. Expandable hydrophilic profiles that block water infiltrations in tunnels, ships, dams, etc.
For years, planners, designers, and managers have been searching for valid replacements for metals used for a wide array of products and components. The need to replace metals with alternative materials arises from the high weight of metals, expensive production processes often limited in the shapes they can provide, and even from corrosion problems, which often force the use of expensive protective coatings.
Engineering plastics can be used in an increasingly wider range of applications. This allows for the creation of innovative and competitive products, which stand out for their high thermal, electrical, chemical, and wear resistance, as well as physical and thermal properties similar to those of metals.
Choosing the right type of polymer to manufacture a product is very important. The wide range of engineering plastics can provide different physical, chemical, rheological, and mechanical properties by adding fillers that can change their behaviour whilst maintaining the intrinsic characteristics of the matrix. This means that we can obtain a huge number of products by combining different polymers with different additives.
The correct design of the cross-section to exploit the exclusive advantages of extrusion can minimise costs and maximise benefits. Taking simple measures during the design stage will help provide a better solution for your application.
