CHT offers special silicone solutions that exhibit hydrophobicity thanks to chemical functionalities on the polymer chains. This feature allows an excellent distribution of the humidity along leather fibres, providing a high-quality, soft and “full” sensation.
Our silicones softeners are suitable for wet-end and finishing applications for formulating fat-liquors, pre-grounds or touch modifiers.
CHT wet-end additives are typically used in the wet-drum stage. Also, if correctly diluted can be applied by spray process or roller in finishing applications.
