APAN is a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) pellet, produced through “reactive extrusion” in the Aipol plant of Montegranaro.
The TPUs combine the high technical properties of the polyurethane elastomers, to the possibility of processing through a termoplastic technology.
A bridge between rubber and traditional thermoplastics. A large number of applications are possible: wheels, belts, gaskets, screens, hoses, cables, soles for footwear, sport shoes, safety shoes, ski boots, films, coatings, adhesives, etc.
The APAN TPUs are available in a large number of different grades and each one can be tailored to the particular end-use. Is this flexibility that makes TPU as an innovative material.

The APANs can be processed with the equipment generally used for the thermoplastics, as injection moulding, extrusion and blow moulding.
Any project can be quickly developed, without technical limitations, for a dynamic approach, closer to the market. Coloring with masterbatches is a realible and easy process.
The material is easily weldable and bondable. The objects produced can be easily painted, and combined with itself, and with many other materials, like thermoplastics, leather, wood, etc.
