The CHT Group offers a wide range of innovative special silicones for both wet-end and finishing applications. Years of experience in the development of silicone products facilitated the development of tailor-made silicone molecules for the latest trends in the leather industry. Our products meet highest demands on innovation and quality together with a strong attention towards sustainability which is increasingly demanded by the quickly growing market. The silicone chemistry offers a wide range of special products for unlimited applications and no other chemical material offers such a variety of product properties like softness, gloss, water repellency, colour deepening, antifoaming, antistatic behavior or hydrophilic character.

Tanneries, leather goods manufacturers and shoemakers use the silicone technology to improve the look, touch, water resistance and durability of their products. Silicones give handbags a smooth luxury feel, while silicone wetting agents ensure that coatings are uniformly applied on leather to make fashion footwear look better. Other silicones incorporated into coatings keep leather breathable and maintain the good look of fashion articles by improving the abrasion resistance, reducing the penetration of water and preventing tanning oils from migrating out of the leather.
