What are the Benefits of Bentonite?

Bentonite is a clay rich in minerals like calcium, silica, magnesium, sodium, potassium, and more. Hence, it is an excellent detoxifying product. In the oil and gas sector, bentonite is most frequently used as a drilling fluid. When mixed with water, bentonite generates a slurry that serves as a lubricant and cooling agent for the drill bit and to eliminate debris from the borehole.

Bentonite is also employed as a binding agent for the manufacturing of iron ore pellets, as well as cement and concrete. It can increase these materials’ sturdiness and strength.
