What is Spectis Made of?
Spectis Molding Products are made from High Density Polyurethane or (HDP). HDP is very hard foam that feels like wood, but significantly better, and can be easily installed similar to white pine.
How is (HDP) Polyurethane made?
Polyurethane is created by mixing isocyanate and resin. The mixture is poured or injected in a liquid state into the custom mold. Once in the mold, a chemical reaction occurs, causing the urethane to expand and quickly harden. The mixture is kept under pressure in the mold as it expands to any desired shape. When fully formed, the product is removed from the mold, the excess removed, and given an exterior grade primer coating.
- Polyurethane is an advanced building material that has amazing benefits vs. wood.
- Spectis Products come fully primed and ready for your paint.
- Spectis is lighter than wood, but has about the same density as pine.
- Spectis can be used on the interior or exterior of the home.
- Spectis won't split, rot, crack, and is impervious to insects like termites.
- Spectis installs just like wood, can be nailed, glued, or screwed.
Where can I use Spectis Products?
Spectis Decorative Urethane Moldings can be used indoors or outdoors to enhance any space. The product is virtually maintenance free and should last a lifetime if properly installed and painted.

Is there any sanding required before I can paint Spectis products?
Yes and No. Spectis products are factory-primed and ready for finishing, but if you have used Pl-premium Glue on any of the joints or nail holes, it would be best to sand them down.
HINT: Fill the nail holes with a dab of PLP Glue, sand down to match.
Do I have to prime Spectis products before painting them?
No. Spectis products come double-primed for interior or exterior applications. For best results we recommend painting Spectis with a high quality latex paint.
