Here’s what we’re most excited about at Spectrum Division this year.

Specialty Services

In 2016 and beyond, our Spectrum Division is focusing on adding even more value to the products our customers purchase – whether that’s applying laminate to a plywood panel, cutting panels to order or pre-finishing. These services are especially valuable for cabinet manufacturers, who can save time by ordering products like precut SpectraBoard panels – hardwood faced panels with decorative overlay backs – instead of having to buy two panels separately and gluing them together.

Spectrum is also able to customize our products based on specifications from customers. From a simple drawing, the team can cut, drill, finish, package and ship exactly what the customer needs for their business.

Roll Laminate

Another focus is our line of roll laminate. Roll laminate is an attractive, low-cost option that’s a great choice for low-wear applications such as the interiors of cabinets. Spectrum’s roll laminates are available in either 30-gram or 60-gram top-coated papers bonded to your choice of high-quality substrates.

One element that sets this product apart is the team’s ability to use roll laminates on a lot of different substrates in various thicknesses and sizes, so customers get exactly what they need.

Thermally-Fused Melamine

Thermally-fused melamine is a paper that has been saturated in melamine resin (which is a thermosetting plastic). With heat and pressure, the melamine liquefies and fuses into the particle board. Unlike roll laminate, once this bond is formed, you can't peel a layer off of the resulting panel. This makes thermally-fused melamine more water resistant, scratch proof and very easy to clean. Spectrum’s thermally-fused melamine panels are durable, affordable, and available in a variety of gorgeous colors. Plus, the team at Spectrum can color-match virtually any color or print.
