Innovative and reliable – effective additives for sustainable and environmentally friendly coating systems

The great variety of paints and coatings makes our world colourful and diverse. In addition to their aesthetic aspects, the coating systems have a material protective function. Longer life-times result, renovation cycles are prolonged and construction materials have to be replaced after a much longer time or not at all. Apart from these aspects of sustainability, ecological factors become more and more important. Focus is put especially on the substitution of solvent-based coating agents by water-borne and water-based formulations.

The CHT Group presents its new corporate identity on the occasion of the ECS. With our claim the new and modern logo underpins the brand promise and stands for strengthening our umbrella brand CHT. In the future, with the brand of Industry Solutions, we will bundle our non-textile activities all over the world.

We would like to invite you to discuss with us your individual application profiles and to present to you our specific offer in the fields of Paint & Coating Solutions, Mineral System Solutions and Leather Solutions.

The CHT Group presents its effective range of highly performing additives, special components, hydrophobic agents and defoamers at the European Coatings Show 2017 in Nuremberg from April 04 - 06, 2017. You will find us in hall 7 at booth 336.

With our presence we put focus on the large range of additives for architectural paints and plasters. Excellent hydrophobic agents which stand for lowest water absorption with optimal water vapour permeability. Our package of additives for you is completed by the natural rheology additives providing your formulations with a plus of stability and processability as well as specific defoamers enhancing your effectiveness in production and application unobtrusively.

As further highlight the CHT Group offers different innovative special additives like CALOR PLUS to you. This biocide protects facades from fungal and algae attack. Just by using sunlight your customers will be able to avoid renovations or repeated cleaning processes.
