With an expanded R&D facility in the UK
CHT now works closely with other CHT development laboratories around the world and with much of the research focused on electrical and electronic applications. CHT are developing coatings, thermal transfer compounds and non-corrosive sealants. Their customer focused development programme and flexible production facility enable us to keep pace with the needs of today’s modern production methods and design requirements.
CHT has been manufacturing silicone compounds for over 40 years.
During that time, they have acquired a great deal of experience and expertise and have gained an enviable reputation for producing high quality materials which have been proven to perform to a very high standard in the most demanding applications, including the aerospace and automotive industries.
Qualified, experienced sales and technical staff
are readily available to make site visits throughout Europe and advise on product selection and production methods. Our expertise extends into all areas of 1 and 2-part RTV silicone chemistry with a strong bias towards application-based solutions.
ACC Silicones became a member of the worldwide operating CHT group in September 2017.
In April 2019, CHT UK Manchester Limited acquired all the assets and liabilities of ACC Silicones Ltd. CHT is a global speciality chemical manufacturer with a strong focus on silicone chemistry. This new development will provide additional resources to drive our application based product development forward. For further information about the CHT Group see ourCompany Profile page.
CHT formulates silicones using different cure mechanisms, each producing its own unique cure profile and physical properties in the adhesive. We manufacture both 1 and 2-part materials using Acetoxy, Alkoxy, Acetone, Oxime and Addition (heat) cure systems.
CHT’s silicones range from optically clear to highly filled grades for thermal conductivity. CHT’s silicone potting compounds and encapsulants are formulated as either a condensation (tin) cure or addition (platinum) cure chemistry.
CHT formulate and manufacture a wide range of silicones designed for use in a variety of industrial and electronic applications. Applied as a liquid which will cure at room temperature (RTV) or with the addition of heat to form a durable elastomer. The cured silicone coating can provide a variety of physical benefits and will adhere to a wide range of substrates.
Silicone oils, or polydimethylsiloxanes, are basic constituents in most silicone-based applications. The most common PDMS fluid is a non-reactive, trimethyl terminated linear polymer with a repeating, easy-to-rotate dimethyl siloxane backbone.
CHT manufacture a variety of additives for use with our silicone elastomers. They can be used to control cure speeds, rheology, hardness and other physical properties of the cured rubber.
Silicone emulsions are inert, heat stable, non-toxic products which suit many industrial applications where lubrication, gloss, antistatic, protective and release properties are advantageous. Silicone emulsions can be divided into three groups depending on the type of emulsifier system used - they can be: anionic, cationic and non-ionic.
Silicone greases are formulated to provide very durable, non-setting, work stable products used to lubricate, electrically insulate and function as a heat transfer medium. They provide excellent protection against moisture and other harsh environmental conditions.
