Drilling Bentonite


Drilling 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.

We cover all possible usage of Bentonite customized to meet rheological properties in achieving desired parameters for wide range of civil applications suitable for Diaphragm walling, Board piling, Tunneling, Pipe – jacking & Horizontal drilling, Oil well drilling, Water well drilling, Grouting applications etc.


  • Viscosity Control: It's used as a drilling fluid additive to control viscosity, helping to suspend and carry drill cuttings to the surface.
  • Lubrication: Bentonite helps reduce friction between the drill bit and the borehole walls, facilitating smoother drilling.
  • Sealing Properties: Its swelling properties enable it to form a sealant layer, preventing fluid loss into permeable formations and stabilizing the borehole walls.
  • Cooling: It aids in dissipating heat generated during drilling, thereby preventing equipment damage and maintaining drilling efficiency.
  • Weighting Agent: Bentonite can be used as a weighting agent to increase the density of drilling fluids, providing additional pressure to counteract formation pressures
  • Packaging – 25 kg, 50 kg, 1mt Bags or customized packing as per requirement.
