Bentonite

 

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.
