Research & Development

We are the true innovators of sports and recreational surfaces and we will never stop innovating!

Advanced Polymer Technology is a leading manufacturer of polyurethane-based materials, acrylic coatings and synthetic turf products around the world. We continue to improve and expand our product lines to keep up with the highest industry standards and, more importantly the needs of our customers and the community.

Our technical teams adopt meticulous, scientific approaches to the research and development of our products and processes including:

  • Use of technologically advanced materials
  • Use of environmentally sustainable materials, renewable resources and recycling initiatives
  • Durability and playability of sports surfaces
  • Athlete comfort and injury prevention
  • Consistency and surface interaction
  • The longevity of our full product range

Rigorous testing ensures a quality product
We test all products in various environments, then refine and retest them again until the APT quality standard is reached. Our sports surfaces are also subject to independent sporting authority testing and performance criteria, so you can rest assured that our products are not only made with the highest quality materials, they will meet the high standards of every sporting, recreational & commercial requirement.

A strong tradition of innovation and advancing quality
The staple products of APT have traditionally been recreational coatings such as those for athletic tracks, playgrounds and tennis courts, protective coatings to reduce wear on buildings and structures, and artificial turf products for low maintenance sports fields.

However, over the years, APT have created superior research and development capabilities that have opened the doors to a variety of custom-made products that suit the needs of special cases and the future of synthetic sporting surfaces worldwide.

APT are proud to say that over the years, more and more environmentally-safe components have been integrated into product manufacturing to reduce the environmental impact as much as possible. In doing this, APT products still meet the needs of our customers who demand the highest quality, easy to maintain and low maintenance surfacing options, that will withstand the test of time and utilise more and more recyclable and renewable materials to keep our planet healthy.

APT believe that every community deserves access to fun, safe, protective and durable surfaces for sporting, recreational and leisure activities, but not at the expense of our environment and future generations.
