Bentonite is a highly colloidal clay mineral which gets its name from the place where its presence and usages were first discovered Ã¢â¬â Fort Benton, America. The multiple properties of bentonite namely hydration, swelling, water absorption, viscosity, thixotropy make it a multi-application product for diverse industries. Primarily two varieties of bentonite are available - sodium bentonite (high swelling, gelling and thermal durability) and calcium bentonite (more commonly available worldwide but with less swelling).
Applications: Bentonite Ã¢â¬â The Clay with the 1000 uses.
Bentonite is a highly versatile mineral. When processed carefully, it caters to a wide range of industries, from traditional usage areas such as metal casting, iron ore pelletizing, civil engineering, drilling, pet litter to speciality application areas such as paper, detergents, cosmetics etc.

Bauxite is a soft, whitish to reddish-brown rock consisting mainly of hydrous aluminum oxides and aluminum hydroxides along with silica, silt, iron hydroxides, and clay minerals. Bauxite is a major source of aluminium. Bauxite is a raw material consisting mainly of alumina-bearing hydroxides, oxides of iron, silicon and titanium with impurities of Ca, Mg, Cr, V, P, Ga and other elements.
About 85% of bauxite mined worldwide is used to produce alumina for refining into Aluminium metal and 15% of bauxite goes into refractory, chemical, cement, abrasives and other applications.
Aluminium is possibly the most versatile product with applications in almost every industry. Since bauxite is the primary source for Aluminium it will always be in great demand.
Application & Uses of Bauxite:
High quality Bauxite is successfully used for metallurgical grade alumina production besides applications in the cement industry, alumina chemical, steel, alum, energy industries, flame-retardants etc.
