Industrial Additives

The absorbent clay of volcanic origin discovered at the end of the 19th century at Fort Benton (Wyoming, USA) was given the name BENTONITE , and like many other industrial minerals, its value comes from its capacity for transformation into products for use in a variety of industrial processes.

Paper, detergents and paint manufacture, moulding sands for foundries, clarifying wine and other beverages – these and many others are processes that use the “industrial additives” based on this mineral clay.
