SOME APPLICATIONS AND INDUSTRIES FOR BENTONITE CLAY

Lonestar Sodium Bentonite is a High-quality material engineered mostly for use as earth sealants. It swells instantly to create an effective plug when sodium bentonite is exposed to water. This rapidly expanding and ecologically stable composition makes it one of the most acceptable sealants in the world. Sodium bentonite clay is also used to cover and seal wells and patch leakage ponds.

FOUNDATION & CEMENT

For the construction and stabilization of concrete, the permeability blend prevents humidity seeping.

Sodium Bentonite Grain Size and its applications

Bentonite has multiple uses. Each application requires a different grain size.
Lonestar Minerals supplies Sodium Bentonite for all kinds of applications. Contact us to know more about Bentonite clay and its applications.

Granular Bentonite

When it comes into contact with water, granular bentonite has a property to swell, forming a gel-like structure.

 

This product helps fill empty spaces or voids; the product can be used to seal wells to prevent water retreating into natural aquifers.

 

It could also be used for plugging abandoned boreholes.

 

The product is mixed with super mud to delay the swelling effect and then discharged into the areas after mixing with water to fill the gaps and voids.

Mix Granular Bentonite Clay (Powder form)

Pond sealant is produced by crushing sodium bentonite. It is ideal for preventing leakage in new or old ponds by applying to the bottom of the pond or by sprinkling along with areas that are either overflowing or are prone to flow.

It can be blended with soil as well. Even applying the product between two layers of soil can prevent seepage.
