PDSCo Bentonite Resources

PDSCo Bentonite

Bentonite can be used in cement, adhesives, ceramic bodies, and cat litter. Bentonite is also used as a binding agent in the manufacture of taconite pellets as used in the steelmaking industry. Fuller’s earth, an ancient dry-cleaning substance, is finely ground bentonite, typically used for purifying transformer oil. Bentonite, in small percentages, is used as an ingredient in commercially designed clay bodies and ceramic glazes. Bentonite clay is also used in pyrotechnics to make end plugs and rocket engine nozzles.

PDSCo Bentonite Grout

Bentonite Grout

PDSCo Grout is a specially formulated sodium bentonite. PDSCo Grout can be used for drilled hole abandonment, water well grout, sealing monitoring well casing or as a geothermal grout.

PDSCo Bentonite Plug

Bentonite Plug

PDSCo Plug is primarily used for sealing wells, borehole, and monitoring well construction. PDSCo Plug can be poured in the hole dry, no mixing required. Upon hydration forms a flexible gel-like mass which fills formation voids and prevents surface contaminants from reaching subsurface groundwater.

PDSCo Granular Seal

Bentonite Plug

PDSCo Plug is primarily used for sealing wells, borehole, and monitoring well construction. PDSCo Plug can be poured in the hole dry, no mixing required. Upon hydration forms a flexible gel-like mass which fills formation voids and prevents surface contaminants from reaching subsurface groundwater.

PDSCo Super Mud Dry

Super Mud Dry

PDSCo Super Mud Dry is an environmentally safe synthetic soil stabilizer in granular form which is designed to be used in place of bentonite as drilling fluid. Super Mud Dry has the ability to quickly impart a very high viscosity (100 plus Marsh Funnel Viscosity) and creates fish-eye structures within its body to assist in plugging the walls of the borehole, which reduces fluid loss.
