Leather Conditioning

The CHT group offers additives for finishing as well as additives that improve the technical performance of conditioning leather.

The first group includes silicones (cationic and non-ionic) used in finishing formulations that bestow a wide spectra of touch modifications spanning from dry and slippery to fatty and full.

The second group includes functional additives to improve technical performances.

  • Wetting and levelling agents
    • Polyether-modified siloxanes decrease the surface tension between leather and liquid, providing noticeable wetting and levelling features
  • Anti-squeak agents
    • These versatile silicones provide a soft and smooth touch while reducing the coefficient of friction value. This provides the anti-squeak behavior that is required in the automotive market.
  • Rub fastness and Taber resistance is an important feature for the car upholstery segment. CHT offers innovative and environmentally friendly solutions.
  • Silicone and carbon-based wax additives are well suited for the shoe upper and garment finishing. They impart anti-swelling and add the ability to polish multiple times.
