Bentonite

It is not always possible to provide bentonite in desired properties with the reason that there is limited unmixed bentonite deposits in the world. Therefore, it is necessary to modify low-quality calcium bentonite with special additives for use of them in the market as an affordable bentonite.

Our product, which is convenient in terms of API 13A Part 9 specifications, is used to increase viscosity and reduce fluid loss in water based drilling fluids. Viscosity in freshwater and sea water muds is a cost effective method for fluid loss control and filter cake quality.

Features

Bentonite is a clay mineral suitable in terms of API 13 A standards. It includes sodium and contains at least 90% montmorillonite. It contains special Karben Chemicals. It has high swelling capacity. It is also suitable in terms of TS EN 13500 Bentonite Specifications. It is suitable for TS 977 Type- 1 standards. It disperses easily when mixed with water and does not clump.
