    What is bentonite?

    Bentonite is a colloidal clay mineral, formed from weathering volcanic ash often in the presence of water. It is a naturally occurring clay, prominently consisting of montmorillonite, with high water absorption capacity, which expands and swells. The swelling action of absorption of bentonite is contingent on its ion exchange capacity.

    The bentonite market is segmented by product type into sodium, calcium, sulphur, and others and by application type into foundry sands, cat litter, iron ore pelletizing, refining, drilling muds, civil engineering, and others.
