Natural sodium bentonite occurs in various deposits around the world. Sodium bentonite are highly swellable and very adsorptive, although their properties can differ from one another depending on how they were formed. The color does not usually play a role, but is the result of the presence or absence of coloring metal oxides. Sodium Bentonite is formed from the weathering of volcanic ash, usually in the presence of water.
Why CMS SODIUMBENT®?
- It has the capability to exhibit thixotropic properties when mixed with brine and high temperature in deep drilling.
- It exhibits binding properties to be used a binder of manure also covers fertilizer grains and decreases loss of fertilizer.
- It provides thin yet strong wall to wall formation, protection to drill bits by cooling and able to deliver high barrel yield.
- It acts effectively as a barrier material for liners, while exhibiting strong sealing properties It is utilized as a carrier of micro nutrients.
- It has high cohesive strength, thermal stability, low rejects, excellent soil activator and can maintain moisture for a long duration of time.
- It has the ability to lower the resistance to earth and enables self-repair due to its swelling properties and possesses high wet tensile strength.
- It has the ability to develop favorable green and dry compressive, ball strength, 3% to 5% of mineral has the ability to develop 15 centipoise viscosity.
- It can withstand higher temperatures since it contains more percentage of metal. It effectively seals lower bed of the soil in order to reduce seepage.
- It contains low silica, hence there is no extra slag formation and It is a strong soil activator and helps in the conversion of saline soil into neutral soil.
- It is capable of holding and absorbing water up till a very high level. It aids in reduction of water pollution and provides resistance against contaminated water.
