There's much to be said about a company manufacturing their own products these days, right down to the production mold, exclusively in the USA. For 65 years, APM has been securing their own patents and setting the industry standard while, operating entirely in the USA. APM HEXSEAL was formed in 1947 with the express purpose of developing sealing products for the U.S. Military for equipment operating in the most adverse conditions and harshest environments. During WWII, the U.S. Military recognized the need to environmentally protect critical equipment's controls. APM stepped up to their challenge and assisted with the development of the MIL-B-5423 (now MIL-DTL-5423) specification to meet these stringent requirements. Indeed, this military specification was written based on APM's proven design and manufacturing processes. APM proceeded to engineer a full line of switch, potentiometer and circuit breaker seals that could operate reliably to 100,000 plus actuations. And, year after year, these boots passed rigorous, independent QPL military inspection equivalent. APM also is UL Recognized and continue to pass this rigorous third party testing. APM then further developed and patented our complimentary line of self-sealing fasteners and washers which were first used on our circuit breaker seal's mounting flange to provide added sealing protection (IP66/68 ingress rating). APM has in excess of 100 patents to its name including our "trigger" to help actuate switches/breakers where necessary and the IQ 1030 toggle switch boot patent. Our imitators have never innovated or had any patents, not even one. More than 50 million HEXSEAL® switch boots have been produced in a wide variety of types and sizes for military, commercial and industrial applications throughout the world. Installed by more than 200,000 customers, APM is the prime supplier for the boating industry, beverage dispensing machines, combat equipment of all kinds, off-road vehicles, medical equipment and a broad range of instrumentation and communications equipment, etc.
