CHT additives are highly effective in adjusting product properties, or positively influencing production and application processes according to your specifications.

Headquartered in Germany, CHT has two manufacturing plants in North America. Our U.S. team of technical experts is ready to discuss the proven product lines below, or work with you closely to adapt our products to your unique requirements and develop the best solution for optimal implementation of your desired or required product properties.

We offer exceptional support and are ready to take on your challenge.

AGOCEL® Rheology Additives

Based on renewable raw materials, we directly influence the flowability and processing properties of your products. AGOCEL optimizes product stability and processability and delivers desired consistency.


SILCO® Leveling, Wetting and Dispersing Additives

If you are looking for specialized dispersing and wetting solutions, consider the SILCO product line. SILCO additives guarantee optimal surfaces and excellent wetting of substrates or pigments.


SPACTIVE® Defoamers

Controlled production, further processing or filling processes can be obtained with the use of SPACTIVE. Foam can be adjusted to the acceptable quantity and ideal consistency achieving better efficiency in production and application.


TECOSIT® Filmformers

A high-quality surface coating depends to a large extent on film forming products. Sealing of surfaces, i.e. closing of pores, is a frequently required property of functional coatings and surface treatments. With our additives, we ensure that your product can reliably serve as a sealant, moisture barrier or insulation against environmental influences.


ULTRALUBE® Surface Modifiers

Surfaces often have very special requirements in terms of finish and haptics. With our broad and flexible portfolio of water-based wax dispersions, we ensure that almost any desired surface effect can be achieved with your products.


VARIPHOB® Hydrophobic Agents

Surface treatments are often used to protect the substrate by preventing water absorption. The hydrophobic effect is the key functional property. VARIPHOB ensures that the surfaces treated with your product have the lowest possible water absorption while maintaining optimum water vapor permeability.
