Paints and Coatings Solutions


Efficient additives and innovative solutions for highest demands

The diversity of paints and coatings makes our world more colourful and multifaceted. Besides the esthetic perception most coating systems have an additional protective effect on the material.

Since the first days of the industrial age paints and coatings have developed at breakneck speed.

Aside from the growing technological and economic demands, ecological aspects have become increasingly important for modern coating systems. The paint and coating industry is thus subject to a permanent innovation process.

As manufacturer and supplier of additives and special chemicals for the paint and coating industry the CHT Group aims at supporting its partners in this process with efficient components and innovative solutions.

Products and assortments

Defoamers and deaerators

Organomodified siloxanes have outstanding defoaming and deaerating properties. Even very low concentrations help to achieve a safe and smooth application.

Levelling and surface additives

Levelling and surface additives are added to different coating systems. Through their surface activity they prevent not only flow disruptions or improve scratch stabilities.

Formaldehyde scavenger

Highly effective formaldehyde scavenger for water-based paints & coatings to improve the indoor air quality in diverse applications.

Water repellency / oil repellency

Wide portfolio of silicone-based water-repellent agents and silicone resins. Coatings become water-repellent but remain open to diffusion. The modification of the formulation ensures a permanent protection of the house front or coating.

Rheological additives

Rheological additives serve for controlling the consistency and processing as well as the flow behaviour and storability of synthetic resin or minerally bound systems.

Substrate wetting agents

Substrate wetting agents decrease the interfacial tension between substrate and a liquid. Polyether siloxanes are very efficient and are mainly added in lowest concentrations to aqueous coating systems.
