API Bentonite

Bentonite has excellent thixotropic /suspension properties with low filtrate loss which makes it ideal for piling & drilling applications. Thixotropic nature of Bentonite allows slurry to penetrate deep into cleavages cracks and clogs the pores and develops good suspensions and friction agent stabilizing the excavations.

We manufacture High yield Bentonite as per Indian Standards (IS), American Petroleum Institute (API) and Oil Companies Material Association (OCMA) Standards.


  • Viscosity Control: It is added to drilling fluids to regulate viscosity, aiding in the suspension and removal of drill cuttings.
  • Fluid Loss Control: Bentonite forms a seal on borehole walls, preventing fluid loss into porous formations and maintaining pressure integrity.
  • Lubrication: It reduces friction between the drill bit and borehole, facilitating smoother drilling and prolonging equipment life.
  • Cooling Agent: Bentonite helps dissipate heat generated during drilling, preventing overheating of drilling equipment.
  • Weighting Agent: It can be used to increase the density of drilling fluids, providing additional pressure to counteract formation pressures.
  • Chemical Stability: Bentonite's inert nature ensures chemical stability, minimizing reactivity with formation fluids and additives.
  • Packaging – 25 kg, 50 kg, 1mt Bags or customized packing as per requirement.
