Bentonite is an absorbent clay consisting mostly of montmorillonite.
Sodium bentonite expands when wet, absorbing as much as several times its dry mass in water.

What is Sodium Bentonite?
Bentonite is primarily composed of clay mineral montmorillonite, a magnesium-aluminum silicate. Bentonite hydrates in freshwater and disperses to varying degrees, depending on the nature of the cations that are loosely held and exchangeable (High cation exchange capacity) the presence of exchangeable sodium ions enhances hydration and dispersion. Divalent cations such as calcium reduce the degree to which the individual platelets disperse, Bentonite is added to freshwater mud for use in one or more of the following purposes:
Uses of Sodium Bentonite Increase the borehole cleaning capability.
- Form a thin low permeability filter cake.
- Reduce filtration into the permeable formations.
- Promote borehole stability in poorly consolidated formations.
- Control loss of circulation.
- Pond Sealant liner (plugs water leaks and seeping)
- Water Treatment Plants.
- Water cleaning treatment, emulsifier.
- Iron and steel foundry.
- Cat litter.
- Detergents and powder soap.
- Steel and aluminum casting.
- Steel Foundries.
- Animal feed.
- Clarifier of wine and juice.
- Civil Engineering applications.
- Deep excavations and applications where cement is used, aqueducts, foundations, tunnels, dams, and general civil engineering projects.
Bentonite is a mineral that can be used in many industries given its unique chemical and physical properties a product that is used as viscosity for drilling muds in the oil, gas, water, deep water wells and foundation concrete industries.
Well Casing and Sealing
While water well is a reliable source of drinking water, sealing the space between the well annulus and the well casing is crucial. When unsealed, the well annulus could become a pathway for water seeping to the ground water below allowing contaminants to enter into the ground water source. That is why sealing a well casing is crucial. Bentonite clay along with cement is pumped into the annular space to fill up the space and seal well casing. In common parlance, this process is often called grouting.
BENTONITE TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS:
Bentonite has a specific gravity of 2.5 and a Mohs hardness of 1 to 1.5. It ranks second in quality only to barite as a drilling – fluid additive.
Pond Sealing – Sodium bentonite for water leaks and pond sealer.
Water makes its way and seeps into the soil with ease when it is stored in an unlined pond. When sodium bentonite pond sealant is applied to the bottom of the pond, it can prevent water seepage most effectively. Sodium bentonite sealant forms a watertight shield between the soil and the water that prevents the loss of water within the pond.
Abandoned water wells need to be sealed properly; this is crucial to prevent contamination of the ground water. Abandoned water well acts as a direct conduit for contaminants to reach groundwater. In most states, it is a statutory requirement to properly decommission and seal the abandoned wells. Once ground water gets contaminated, the cleaning is not only expensive but complicated. Pond Sealer bentonite offers an easy solution for plugging any abandoned water well.
Due to its unique property of preventing seepage, sealer bentonite is also used as a lining agent at landfill sites. Landfill sites are full of toxic and unwanted material. Bentonite sealant effectively prevents toxic chemicals from leaching out in underground water streams and surrounding areas safeguarding the health of community members in the region.
Wastewater Lagoon Sealing
Wastewater treatment system consists of septic tank and lagoons. An improper or damaged lining of wastewater lagoons may cause seepage of wastewater into nearby water sources spoiling drinking water supply. This may put the health of the people in surrounding areas at risk. As an immediate and urgent remedy, pond sealer bentonite comes handy to prevent seepage’s and safeguard underground water sources.
Cat litter our cat litter has a tight clumping ability that produces a solid clump that is easily scooped away. Rapid Clumping:: since cats cover and scratch, our rapid clumping formula ensures lest dust and tracks around the house. Odor Control: Our cat litter is made of 100% bentonite which is a natural absorbent and we also offer various choices of natural scents for maximum odour control. Environmental friendly and Dust free: bentonite which is an inert compound eliminating all fine particles that avoid cleaning or breathing dust.
We offer private label and also our new unique technology cat litter blend with odor control ingredients that is a powder form and processed to a cluster particle size of 30 to 40 mesh mixed with granular cat litter making a premium high-end cat litter lightweight.
Bentonite has the property of adsorbing relatively large amounts of protein molecules from aqueous solutions.
Powder raw clay and blended powder with minerals, chemicals, and other ingredients custom made for our clients.
We also offer a cluster form particle granular of our blended powder to reduce dust and product flowability.
Drilling Mud Gel
Used in drilling fluids to lubricate and cool the cutting tools, to remove cuttings, and to help prevent blowouts.
