Specialty Products Incorporated (SPI) was founded 40 years ago by a team of people exploring the then new advent of plural spray technology, first off with polythene foam, then later into the 80’s with polyurea elastomer technologies.

They have been at the forefront of the plural spray revolution, and still lead from the front after 40 years of continuous trading. SPI are known throughout the world as global leaders in polythene foam and polyurea technologies.

The European arm of SPI was established in 2012 to increase market awareness and coverage of this amazing technology.

We hold accreditation with JOSCAR, the leading defence industry accreditation supplier. JOSCAR covers the security, aerospace and defence sectors, and is supported by Babcock, Leonardo, BAE Systems, Qinetiq, Nats and Meggitt.

We are also ISO9001:2015 certified:
