The Specialty Additives Division combines the businesses of versatile additives and high-performance crosslinkers. Small input - big effect: In keeping with this principle, our specialties make the difference. They make our clients' products more valuable, more durable, save more energy and in many respects, simply better.

Our products are something very special. They often achieve amazing effects even with small quantities. Even though it may not be visible in the end product, the results surround us everywhere.


The level of gloss is necessary for the appearance of coatings. The brand ACEMATT® offers a variety of products to the formulator finding the right balance of effectiveness for matting properties and easy incorporation into the coating system. The full spectrum of matting levels such as semi-gloss, mat and semi-mat can be reached by using the precipitated and thermal silica based matting agents.


The rheological properties of paints and coatings can be regulated according to the needs with either hydrophilic or hydrophobic AEROSIL® grades. Added amounts of 0.3 – 1.0 %, based on the total formulation, are typical in nearly all solvent and waterborne systems, as well as in high solids coatings. The incorporation of AEROSIL® particles into a coating generally produces a pseudoplasticity that is often linked with a thixotropic effect.
