Notes

A California calcium, low swelling, colloidal type bentonite clay. It is prime for water impedance, asphalt coating applications, drilling mud and is also used in such products as paints, adhesives and cleaning compounds where absorption and body are needed. It is the most grit-free bentonite produced for commercial scale.
