Granular Bentonite Seal: Sodium Bentonite for Grouting

Granular bentonite is a natural substance that contains no chemical additives. It is commonly used in drilling applications and to seal wells because its unique properties allow it to create barriers between soil and water. Granular bentonite is an economical way to accomplish bentonite grouting, as this material forms a semi solid, gel-like mass, which fills voids and limits water movement.
