- Bentonite makes the mortar stable by suspending cement particles and sand during mixing and injection when it is added into cement slurry or mortar.
- Bentonite minimizes the seperation of water in cement – water mixture
- When Bentonite added into cement slurry, it increases the diffusion degree in fine grained alluvion. Therefore cement waste is avoided. Mixtures act as a fluid, a homogenous hardening occurs when mixing is stopped and it gains high strength.
- Bentonite repairs the cracks on the walls constructed for preventing water leak. It provides viscosity to cement slurry and increases the diffusion of the slurry into the thin cracks.
