Materials and Equipment for your Unique Applications

SP&S supplies some of the leading specialty materials used in the aerospace, automotive and electronic industries. These materials have been the industry standards for high performance bonding, conformal coating and encapsulation for more than 30 years. They feature outstanding physical and electrical properties and extremely low out-gassing for aerospace, high vacuum & optical applications.

Specialty Materials

We stock and distribute specialty materials from more than a dozen manufacturers and customize packaging and formulations to meet the unique needs of each of our customers. The adhesives, coatings, encapsulants and other materials we manufacture and distribute meet over 2,000 Military, Aerospace and industrial specifications. We have developed into a multi-line distributor, specialty packager and custom formulator of adhesives, coatings, sealants, encapsulants, mold-making and other tooling materials.

Our History

Our company was founded in 2001, by several long-time employees of the company then known as Vantico (formerly Ciba-Geigy, Ciba Specialty Chemicals and now known as Huntsman Advanced Materials). We began as a specialty distributor for Huntsman. Quickly, we developed into a multi-line distributor, specialty packager and custom formulator of adhesives, coatings, sealants, encapsulants, mold-making and other tooling materials.

Our Staff

Our on-site staff has more than 50 years combined experience in using and applying epoxy, polyurethane, and silicones. In addition we've put together a network of business partners, consultants and associates that collectively brings the total pool of experience to more than 250 man years (almost 500,000 man hours of experience). Our expertise ranges from resin synthesis & formulation to processing, dispensing, applying, and curing thermoset polymers such as epoxies, urethanes, polyesters, and silicones.
