White Bentonite

Bentonite is the active protective layer of geosynthetic clay liners.  Bentonite clay is a natural clay with a fine, soft texture.

Bentonite is an absorbent clay consisting mostly of montmorillonite. It is used in a variety of industries, including construction, foundry, oil and gas, agriculture, and environmental remediation. Bentonite is added to drilling fluids to increase viscosity and prevent fluid loss, to seal wells and landfills, and to stabilize soil in construction. It is also used as a binder in iron ore pellets, as a suspending agent in paints and coatings, and as a clarifying agent in wine and beer production.

Its specific properties include swelling, water absorption, viscosity, and thixotropy.

Three main types of  Bentonite:

  1. High Swelling (Sodium)
  2. Low Swelling (Calcium)
  3. Moderate Swelling (intermediate sodium-calcium) bentonite.
