Specac & Chemplex

At Specac we undertake design and manufacture of accessories and sample preparation solutions for Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-Ray Fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF), and near-infrared (NIR) process spectroscopy. We were the first to market a commercial diamond ATR solution with the Golden Gate, which was launched more than 25 years ago.

In 2015 Specac was purchased from Smiths Group by members of the executive team in partnership with a venture capital trust company, Foresight Group. Specac now employs around 80 people with offices in the USA and the UK and a network of distributors worldwide. In July 2019 relocated to a brand-new facility, the Specac Science & Innovation Centre.

Specac manufactures an extensive range of FTIR Accessory, IR Polarizer, and Pellet Press Products for Atomic and Molecular Spectroscopy. These  include ATR Accessories, Specular Reflectance Accessories, Diffuse Reflectance Accessories, Liquid Transmission and Gas Transmission Cells,  Infrared and Terahertz Wire Grid Polarizers, Bench-Top Hydraulic Presses, KBr Pellet Presses, XRF Pellet Presses, Thin Film Making Kits, and Evacuable Pellet Dies.
