CHT Group, a medium-sized global player in specialty chemicals and active in development, production and sales, has recently launched its new LAB102 brand, the "Jeans & Garment" team of the CHT Group focused on developing new sustainable developments for the denim industry.
In order to promote this new division, CHT has coined "LAB102 – Blue veins of CHT", a brand name and a claim, the group of companies wants to offer its global garment customers with sustainable chemical solutions and technologies for the future.
LAB102, a name with an aim
The LAB102 name was chosen not only because the English word for "laboratory" fits perfectly with a chemical company, but also because it stands for innovation, development, and discovery.
The digits "102" of the name, instead, refer to the street number of CHT's corporate headquarters in Tübingen, where the company is based.
The claim "Blue veins of CHT" is set to maintain the connection to the company's name CHT, which is well-known in the industry. Moreover, as the denim and jeans industry are traditionally and historically closely tied to indigo - thus blue, hence the name. And through its developments for the denim industry, the CHT "Jeans & Garment" team has this blue dye almost in its blood, flowing through its veins - Blue veins of CHT.
Focus on sustainability
LAB102 focuses not only on chemistry, but also on technology. Nebulization, laser, and ozone technologies are innovations that currently enable new approaches in jeans and garment treatment and are at the highest ecological level. Moreover, their use can lead to extreme savings in water and energy. The use of chemicals can also be reduced if processes are optimized and adapted to the new requirements. To this end, the CHT Group's "Jeans & Garment" team works with the leading machine manufacturers on new developments.
With these new processes and recipe changes focused on offering sustainable products, LAB102 provides many new possibilities to achieve conventional effects with more sustainable components. In addition to innovative products to support the new machine technologies, LAB102 also provides ongoing development of new fashion effects.
A brand with an international heart
The orientation of the brand's launch is international. Over the years, CHT Group has built up a strong network of experts in the most important destinations visited by the denim industry.
Therefore, the CHT "Jeans & Garment" team operates where its customers are located to support them and exploit both local conditions and technical possibilities. And not only it supports its clients virtually and in terms of sales, but also with high technical expertise and support.
