The PCT Group of companies that includes six further subsidiaries was founded in 1991.

PCT is an autonomous research and development company which is also affiliated to an American group of companies with branches in New York & Los Angeles that works in cooperation with universities and research institutes on the development of new building chemical products and their distribution.

In 1996 deficits in the products already available on the market were analyzed clearly. Following that, by means of a European network of highly educated engineers and competent partners such as building processors, manufacturers of building chemical products, professors and universities, new research goals were defined.

Top priority was given to developing products that eliminate fundamental problems, improve the processing, ensure absolute reliability and offer an excellent cost-effectiveness.

In the field of floor systems we were able to develop the group of Retanols that showed unprecedented features from the beginning and delighted architects, planners, general contractors and screed layers.

Nowadays PCT Performance Chemicals GmbH guarantees the effectiveness of its products that is also characterized by sustainability and biological safety.
