APL, your long-term partner for solid-based, liquid or gaseous applications, offers customised solutions for the development of new applications and methods in the field of fluid and material analyses. Our comprehensive understanding of the entire product – from the molecule to the individual elements to the complete system and its functions – enables us to precisely analyse, test and validate customer-specific formulations of modern and intelligent fluids for specific use cases.

Our value proposition: We understand in detail the requirements of end customers in the powertrain, chassis and the entire mobility ecosystem, as well as in the IT industry with its high-performance data centres. We conduct independent, application-specific analyses of the properties of various intelligent fluids and oils.

Through our commitment to “Smart Chemicals & Liquids”, APL supports companies in developing future-proof and sustainable solutions that fulfil both technical and ecological requirements.
