Bentonite is an absorbent aluminum phyllosilicate clay consisting mostly of montmorillonite. The main uses of bentonite are for drilling mud, binder for ores,  absorbent (pet litter),  groundwater barriers and as a coagulant in water treatment.

SLS buys directly from a Canadian mine and can request a wide variety of yields, mesh sizes and packaging.

Bentonite is used in drilling fluids to lubricate and cool the cutting tools, to remove cuttings, and to help prevent blowouts.
