Bentonite powder is a naturally occurring, highly absorbent clay-like substance derived from volcanic ash. It is composed primarily of montmorillonite, a mineral that is known for its ability to absorb water and other liquids. Bentonite powder is commonly used in a variety of industries, including construction, drilling, and cosmetics, due to its unique properties such as its ability to swell and form a gel-like substance when it comes into contact with water, making it useful as a binding, thickening, and clarifying agent.



Bentonite powder has a wide range of applications in various industries. Here are some major or common uses of bentonite powder:

  1. Drilling and Construction: Bentonite powder is commonly used as a drilling mud in the oil and gas industry to lubricate and cool drilling bits, and to remove cuttings from the well. It is also used as a sealant in construction, particularly in the construction of underground structures like tunnels and dams.
  2. Foundry: Bentonite powder is used as a bonding agent in the foundry industry to bind sand particles together to create molds for casting metals.
  3. Cosmetics: Bentonite powder is a popular ingredient in cosmetics and personal care products such as face masks, body scrubs, and bath bombs, due to its ability to absorb oil and impurities from the skin.
  4. Animal Feed: Bentonite powder is added to animal feed to aid in digestion, as it can absorb toxins and improve nutrient absorption.
  5. Pharmaceuticals: Bentonite powder is used in the pharmaceutical industry as a binder for tablets and capsules, as well as a suspending agent for liquids.
  6. Environmental Remediation: Bentonite powder is used in environmental remediation projects to stabilize soils and prevent groundwater contamination.
  7. Agriculture: Bentonite powder is used in agriculture as a soil conditioner and fertilizer, as it can improve soil structure, retain moisture, and increase nutrient uptake.
