Sodium Bentonite Clay is an effective pond sealant, a clumping and anti-odor agent for cat litter, a cleansing agent in wastewater treatment and a clumping agent for metal casting green sand. The water absorbing property this material has makes it versatile for many applications. Read below to learn some of these applications.


One of the most widely known applications of bentonite is as a pond sealer. For a pond to be able to hold water, it has to have a high-clay soil composition. As a matter of fact, this condition is rarely met in ponds and lakes. The best solution for this issue is to add sodium bentonite as a pond liner, to increase the clay composition of the soil and favor the creation of a watertight seal at the bottom of the pond. When the pond has already been lined and the leaks are localized to a specific area, the bentonite pond sealer is applied to the specific area in order to create the waterproof seal.


Bentonite has several advantages over other pond liners and sealers. As a natural clay, it won’t affect the ecology of your pond. It will hold under the heavyweight of cattle and other livestock and it is ideal for outlet, dam and embankments limits. Bentonite clay is a low cost material and the investment, when used as a pond liner, is similar to other lining materials in the market. However, sodium bentonite holds the upper hand in the long term, as maintenance costs are nearly zero and the risk of “puncture or tear” is practically non-existing.



Lonestar Minerals has developed a Formulated Sodium Bentonite to be specifically used as a sanitary binder waste for domestic cats. This makes our company an excellent source for premium high-quality cat litter bentonite that is odor controlled, fast clumping, dust-free, and easy to scoop while being pet, planet, and people-friendly. We have several years of experience in packaging, shipping, and delivering products to large retailers who use our product to provide a competitive edge in their market. Today, all of our cat litter products are sold under a private label.


Lonestar Minerals has perfected over the year cat litter formulas that absorb, deodorize and disinfect, making them the perfect toilet for your feline companions. We can supply from one pallet (usually useful for people with several cats at home) to hundreds of tons a month for retail purposes. We have several packing options, bulk and private label and one of the best prices in the market.



The primary purpose of wastewater treatment is to extract dissolved pollutants in water before they are discharged into the environment or reused treated water as a base for your process. Using sodium bentonite to attract certain particles, it is possible to make the pollutants in the water clump together and create sediment that can be easily separated from the water.


Lonestar Bentonite blended sodium bentonite clay for wastewater treatment is a highly efficient mineral used in the purification of wastewater and sludge dewatering. Using our bentonite clay product removes more than 90 percent of unwanted liquids and suspended solids. Our product also complies with safe water discharge requirements.  We also offer our laboratory services to test your wastewater and formulate the best clay formula for your contaminated water and offer custom made formulated clays for your particular water treatment.
