Bentonite use montmorillonite as the main mineral composition of nonmetal minerals refractory raw material. bentonite use montmorillonite because the main mineral composition of nonmetal minerals refractory material, it’s additionally referred to as spot to require off the rock. It’s the most mineral composition of montmorillonite, that content in 85-90%, some properties of bentonite are determined by the montmorillonite. It will show a spread of color, like yellow, green, gray, white, and so on. It may be dense patches, even be used for the loose soil, you’ve got slippery feeling by hand grinding, little block water volume swells when many times to 20-30 times, are suspended within the abundant water, paste within the very little water.


The properties of the montmorillonite supported its chemical composition and internal structure. to the eye, the identification of a prime quality of bentonite clay is pure white, typically even have grey or pale-yellow white, actually because of the suction or contains impurities and was weak green, weak, rosy color, etc. Dried still is pure white, grey or pale-yellow white. With the hand break once cross section is uneven, and frozen gel. Have oily luster, touching the slippery feeling. Can swell, good will become mixture. If once long-run dry wet loss, it will become incompact once more. bentonite by a powerful force of ion exchange, thus it’ll sorption or absorption of all varieties of color. it’s mixed with oil, will create the oil shiny. Its fine powder and water suspension, dispersion (divergence) is extremely sensible, tough to sink in. Natural bentonite kind, primarily by the montmorillonite relative content is split into the sort of ion that Ca, sodium, hydrogen, Li montmorillonite, etc., that is given priority to with calcium montmorillonite clay referred to as calcium base bentonite.


Types of Bentonite

Bentonite has several types that any of them used in different industry, however one of the important fields which it uses a lot is drilling, so that our most export refers to this case. As the same property among all types of this mineral, we can say high absorption ability and to be inflation by water. Two usual types of this, are swelling and non-swelling which supply with two standers API and OCMA by our company. typically Types of bentonite are involve:

Sodium bentonite

Calcium bentonite

Magnesium bentonite

Potassium bentonite


Bentonite packing

Applications of bentonite

Bentonite is some mineral with high level uses in many fields and reasonable price, also is a good alternative instead of diatomite, used in: oil wells drilling, earth wells, making detergents, color hiding, making oil and its refinery, fabric softener, pet care, water refinery and clarification, oil absorbent, sewage drums, dam making, soil sustainability, pets food enrichment, drugs, medical and lots other more applications.

Specification of Bentonite

Bentonite has different grades, meshing, yield and some other components which each usage, requires its special specification. Overall, this mineral mostly uses in drilling oil wells with usual 325 mesh and our exporting based on this spec. on the other hand, our company accepts the other specifications for other uses. BASEKIM is ready to contract and cooperation with companies all over the world.
