Spectex is an exclusive converter and distributor of FLATLITE® Electroluminescent lamp. Electroluminescent (EL) light is described as a Light Emitting Capacitor (LEC). It is a much more efficient way of background lighting than LED (Light Emitting Diode). EL lamp has many benefits including being thin, flexible, energy efficient and cool. EL Lamp is made in rolls and uses aluminum foil as its main conductor. Another big benefit of FLATLITE® is its ability to be converted into various shapes and sizes. Depending on your background lighting situation, Spectex will not only help you in converting it, but can help you create your project thru our mechanical engineering and background lighting knowledge. FLATLITE® allows designers to put light where it was never before possible with an ease of fabrication not matched by any other light source in the world. To put it quite simply, FLATLITE® is only limited by imagination in the ways it can be used.

Unique items converted by Spectex using this product have the brand SPECTALITE ™.
