Bentonite Clay (powder)
bottled in Switzerland by mychem.ch
Bentonite is a mixture of different clay minerals, created by the weathering of volcanic ash.
Bentonite got its name after the first discovery at Fort Benton, Wyoming (USA).
Bentonite is montmorillonite, an aluminum hydrosilicate from the group of phyllosilicates. This gives the bentonite its extraordinary properties.
Bentonite has a strong ability to swell. In conjunction with water, its surface area increases many times over, thus enabling an unusually high absorption capacity for pollutants. Bentonite is able to bind several times its own weight.
The composition and structure of the minerals are slightly different from that of the zeolite. But here too, pollutants are bound by ion exchange.

Bentonite has a variety of applications. It can be used for rheological modification, as binder, adsorbent, filler, such as soil additive, foundry, iron ore agglomeration, civil engineering, filtration (e.g.oil, wine, beer), pharma& cosmetics, and as food and feed additive in human and animal nutrition.
Description of the qualities
Pheur / pharmaceutical quality describes the purity level of a product. Pharmaceutical quality is purer than food quality and can be used in pharmacy or added to food. This quality is also used as a raw material for cosmetic products.
