MS bentonite

MS bentonite is a high-performance mixture of modified bentonite and activated additives. It is used for stabilisation of slurry walls. Thanks to its ideal formula, it makes it possible to prepare a suspension with enhances rheological parameters and high thixotropy at low concentrations.

A suspension made with MS bentonite ensures the excellent stabilisation of trench walls. The bentonite swells and creates a suspension with high rheological parameters. Bentonite, as a thixotropic liquid, possesses very high structural strength: it maintains the stability of trench walls by slowing down the spillage of soil and the closing down of the walls.
