On Spectis' flexible product use HQ Alkyd Enamel such as Sherwin Williams SuperPaint. The surface must be clean, dry, and free from all greases or waxes before all finish work is begun.

  3. How should I finish Spectis products?

    All Spectis products are shipped with two coats of paint. The second coat is an exterior product that acts as a primer for field finishing. Spectis' products require finishing to complete the installation procedure and fully be covered under warranty. This procedure includes all steps necessary to repair any seams/joints in moulding installation as well as filling the screw/nail holes made during installation. Spectis' products can be painted as desired, however dark or glossy colors should not be used as they will accentuate any flaws left during installation.

  4. Why do you recommend using PL Premium?

    PL Premium is a revolutionary new construction adhesive that provides superior results and is safe to use. It may be used inside or outside and will last as long as the surface joins together. The bonding strength of PL Premium is strong, so much less adhesive is required to complete your projects. PL Premium is very easy to use, waterproof, paintable, and exhibits low odour.
