Custom Die Cutting
Spectex serves world-wide industry with one of the broadest selections of Precision Custom Die Cutting capabilities. Geometry of the finished part can range from simple doughnut shapes to complex forms with irregular holes and cut outs.

Die Cutting
Spectex has a variety of die cutting methods used for a variety of die cut materials. Die cutting methods include Rotary die cutting, Clicker cutting, Traveling Head die cutting as well as a many high speed die cutting presses.

Electro-lum Fab
rubber materialSpectex 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.

Fiber, Felt, and Foam Gaskets and Die Cut Parts
Spectex is a foremost producer of precision fiber, felt, foam gaskets and fiber, felt, and foam die cut parts and related substrates.

Spectex is available to handle your sorting, kitting and packaging needs. We offer semi-automated and hand assembly for intricate work, very small roll products or specialized packaging requirements.

Spectex uses state of the art equipment for the skiving or splitting of materials. This is the ability to take a thicker piece of material and bring it down to a specific thickness that is not readily available.

Rotary Die Cutting
Spectex has a variety of Rotary Die Cutting machines which utilize a cylindrical die which travels over a flat surface which contains the depressed female die. A wide variety of materials can be roll-fed or sheet-fed through the rolling rotary die cutting die. This includes rubber and related rubber products, plastics of all types, fiber, felt, and foam. Please see a complete listing under "Products: Gaskets and Die Cut Parts". The die cuts or perforates desired shapes and the waste is disposed. "Kiss Cutting" is readily performed because the die does not touch the liner.

Slitting/ Rewinding
Spectex's slitting capabilities allows the precision slitting of a variety of materials including felts, scrims, fabrics, foams, papers and foils (to name a few). Our modern slitting equipment assures the fastest possible turnaround times without compromising quality.

Thermo Bond / Mold
Waterjet Cutting, Machining, ExtrudingSpectex produces a wide range of products that combine thermal bonding and die cutting. In some instances, numerous layers of the same material are locally adhered at selected locations prior to die cutting and in other cases, dissimilar materials are adhered together with a variety of glues and techniques prior to forming and/or die cutting. Spectex can custom Thermal form and mold a variety of thermoplastic and composite materials.

Waterjet Cutting
Water-jet cutting is an excellent method for producing prototype and test parts or short production runs since no expensive tooling is required. Our waterjet cutting capabilities offer a fast, flexible and accurate method of cutting that includes complex or difficult parts while maintaining the integrity of the material. Spectex has the ability to waterjet cut with either ultra high pressure water or an abrasive stream allowing us to process a diverse range of materials.

Adhesive Backed Felts
Spectex offers a variety of pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA). We are a sanctioned 3M converter and have access to a number of engineered products both industrial and medical. Our laminating capabilities allow us to apply these adhesive systems onto a number of substrates including, but not limited to, felts, foams, rubbers, films, foils and cork.
