BENTONITE POWDER (purified) is a product provided by Research-Lab Fine Chem Industries. Laboratory reagents are chemicals which are used in laboratories as a part of experimental procedures. These reagents can be important parts of chemical reactions, analytical reagents or starting material for the production of other materials.
This BENTONITE POWDER is purified and of laboratory grade.This product is an absorbent aluminium phyllosilicate clay which mostly consists of montmorillonite. Bentonite generally forms from the weathering of volcanic ash, usually in the presence of water. There are different types of bentonite which are sodium, calcium and potassium bentonite. Bentonite powder has a variety of applications in chemical and biological sectors. The major applications of this reagent include drilling mud, binders such as foundry-sand bond, iron ore pelletizer. It is also used as a purifier, absorbent for pet litter, and as a groundwater barrier. These products are also used for decolorizing various mineral, vegetable, and animal oils. It is uniquely used in the process of winemaking, where it is added to remove excessive amounts of protein from white wines. Bentonite has additionally been prescribed as a bulk laxative, and is as a base for many dermatologic formulas. They are used as desiccants to protect pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and diagnostic products from moisture degradation and extend their shelf life. This reagent is suitable for industrial synthesis of products and research applications.
