What is Bentonite?

Bentonite is a type of clay that is formed from the weathering of volcanic ash. It is primarily composed of the mineral montmorillonite, which gives it its unique properties.

Here are some key points about bentonite:  

1). Composition and Structure: Bentonite is a highly absorbent clay composed mainly of montmorillonite, although other minerals such as feldspar, quartz, and gypsum may also be present. Montmorillonite is a type of smectite clay mineral known for its expandable and high cation exchange capacity (CEC). This means that bentonite can swell and absorb water or other liquids, and it has the ability to exchange and retain various ions.

2). Types of Bentonite: There are different types of bentonite, classified based on their dominant mineral compositions and properties. Sodium bentonite, also known as western bentonite, swells significantly when wet and is commonly used in drilling muds, sealing ponds, and as a liner for landfills. Calcium bentonite, also known as southern bentonite, has a lower swelling capacity and is used in the construction industry for applications such as soil stabilization and drilling muds.

3). Absorbent and Adsorbent Properties: Bentonite has excellent water absorption capacity, making it useful in a variety of applications. It can absorb several times its weight in water and form a gel-like consistency. This property makes it valuable in industries such as agriculture, where it is used as a soil conditioner and water retention agent. Bentonite also has adsorbent properties, allowing it to attract and bind to substances such as toxins, heavy metals, and organic compounds. This makes it useful in environmental remediation and wastewater treatment.

4). Industrial Uses: Bentonite has numerous industrial applications. In the oil and gas industry, it is used as a drilling fluid additive to control pressure and lubricate the drill bit. It is also used in foundries for molding and casting processes, in paper production to improve paper quality, in cosmetics for its absorbent and thickening properties, and in various other industries such as ceramics, paints, and construction.

5). Health and Safety: Bentonite is generally considered safe for humans and the environment. However, prolonged inhalation of bentonite dust may irritate the respiratory system, so appropriate precautions should be taken when handling dry powdered bentonite. It is important to follow safety guidelines and use protective measures when working with bentonite.

Bentonite is a versatile clay with excellent absorbent and adsorbent properties. Its ability to swell and retain water, along with its adsorption capabilities, make it valuable in various industries, including agriculture, construction, oil and gas, and environmental remediation.     
Our trade process spreads across CIF, FOB, TTO, and TTT, depending on the buyer's preference.

Here's what they entail:

1). Cost Insurance and Freight (CIF): Here, the seller will handle everything from loading the vessel, paying for insurance, and sending the product to wherever the buyer wants it delivered.

2). Freight On Board (FOB): Here, the seller pays for the transportation of the goods to the port of shipment, plus loading costs, while the buyer pays the cost of marine freight transport, insurance, unloading, and transportation from the originating port to the final destination.

3). Tanker Take Over (TTO): Here, the buyer will take over the vessel, offload the product at their destination, and return it.

4). Tanker To Tanker (TTT): Here, the buyer uses their own vessel, long sides with the seller's vessel, and then the cargo is transshipped when the transaction is fully settled.
