Our world famous brands


Evonik’s silica-based matting agents affect the surface structure in such a way that the light hitting the treated surface is scattered. The matting particles - which break the surface of the coating - are invisible to the human eye. Neither the color of the coating nor the underlying surface are significantly affected.


AEROSIL® fumed silica. Numerous application possibilities are reflected in the uniquely extensive product range of AEROSIL®.


The TEGO® brand stands for a wide range of additives, like e.g. defoamers, deaerators, surface control additives, hydrophobing agents, etc. as well as for adhesion and synthetic resins. 


Evonik's SURFYNOL® range of multifunctional additives consists of low foam dynamic wetting agents, unique molecular defoamers and specialty surfactants.
