MPI / MPI Approved Products List (APL) / About APL

MPI Approved Products – Information

MPI’s Approved Products List (APL) is the industry standard for finding the right product to fit the job. With myriad standards covering a wide array of architectural and light industrial painting situations, the APL is here to support the needs of contractors, architects, specifiers, and manufacturers.
The APL is available as a searchable and filterable list, as well as in two indexed formats: by MPI standard number as well as by Group. The Group index is divided on the axis of both interior versus exterior as well as solvent-based versus water-based. These are the same groups used to delineate the MPI Standards Community.
