To drive this new division, CHT has created “LAB102 – Blue lines of CHT”, a brand and statement, a group of companies that want to provide its global apparel customers with solutions and technologies. Sustainable chemical technology for the future.
LAB102, a name with a purpose
Name LAB102 was chosen not only because the English word “laboratory” perfectly fits a chemical company, but also because it symbolizes innovation, development and discovery.
Instead, the digits “102” of the name refer to the street number of CHT’s corporate headquarters in Tübingen, where the company is located.
The statement “The Blue Veins of CHT” was coined to maintain its association with the company’s CHT name, which is well known in the industry. Furthermore, as the denim and jeans industry has traditionally and historically been closely associated with indigo – hence the color blue, hence the name. And through their forays into the denim industry, the “Jeans & Garment” CHT team had this blue dye almost in their blood, running through their veins – the blue veins of the CHT.
Focus on sustainability
LAB102 focuses not only on chemistry but also on technology. Mist, laser and ozone technologies are innovations that are currently enabling new approaches in the treatment of jeans and clothing and at the highest ecological level. Furthermore, their use can lead to extreme savings in water and energy. Chemical use can also be reduced if processes are optimized and adapted to new requirements. To this end, the “Jeans & Apparel” group of the CHT Group works with leading machine manufacturers on new developments.
With these new formulation and process changes focused on delivering sustainable products, LAB102 offers new possibilities for achieving conventional effects with more sustainable ingredients. In addition to innovative products to support new machinery technologies, LAB102 also provides the continuous development of new fashion effects.
A brand with an international heart

As a result, the “Jeans & Garment” CHT team works where the customers are to support them and exploit both local conditions and technical capabilities. And it not only supports its customers virtually and in terms of sales, but also with high technical support and expertise.
