Available in both water-based and solvent-based chemistries, our adhesive formulas include heat-activated, pressure sensitive, rubber cements, and more.

Binders, Concentrates & Slurries

APV offers custom concentrates formulated by infusing nano particles into thermoset resins or liquid materials. Concentrates make it easy to transfer the superior strength and conductive properties of carbon nanotubes and nano graphene into commercial applications that incorporate: elastomers, plastics, metals, coatings, and adhesives.


Crayons or Ply Markers are typically used to mark rubber surfaces for inspection and identification purposes. They have zero VOCs and are available in a variety of colors.


APV decals are for rubber surfaces and noted for their exceptional durability and aesthetics. Decals are custom and made-to-order with your logo or special graphics.


APV dyes are designed specifically for fabric material, such as hoses, and provide rich colors that resist fading over a long period of time.

Forging Lubricants

APV offers both polymeric and graphite forging lubricants to meet all of your various metal forging needs. Our PolyForge and GraForge lubricants are designed to deliver the highest performance to ensure excellent lubrication, release and die protection.


APV offers a full line of inks for wide range of industries. Ink formulations span from silkscreen, tire striping, and temperature sensitive, to ink for alpha-numeric coding, UV resistance, disappearing, and inspection marking. APV can also develop custom ink solutions for special applications.

Inspection Markers

APV offers water-based tire writers and dot markers for the tire production industry for process verification to mark product installation points or pass/fail marks.

Maskant Materials

APV Engineered Coatings has developed masking procedures and compounds to prevent coating formation on portions of alloy/superalloy parts and assemblies during high-temperature diffusion coating/processing. The APV masking system is highly credited in the gas turbine engine industry and can be utilized in the operations of diffusion coating for new or overhauled aero/jet engines and industrial engines.

Paints & Coatings

APV specializes in engineered paints and coatings for a vast range of applications. Whether you are looking for stain blocking, UV resistance, corrosion protection, abrasion resistance, or a zero VOC coating alternative, APV has a formulation for you.


Primers are formulated for a variety of substrates such as ferrous and non-ferrous metals, fiber cement, TPO, PVC, wood and more. Whether you’re trying to block efflorescence, minimize tannin bleed, or achieve a good adhesion base for the topcoat, APV has a primer formulation to meet your needs.

Tire & Rubber Lubricants
