This bentonite powder fine, natural from Natao comes from Germany. It is a fine powder. Made in Germany. It is not cleaned, but natural and therefore very valuable.
Occurrence and origin
Bentonite was named after Fort Benton, Montana in the USA. However, the bentonite offered here originates from deposits in Germany. The mining areas are located in eastern Upper Bavaria and Lower Bavaria. It is a rock with a mixture of different clay minerals.
The most important component is montmorillonite with 60-80 %. It has the ability of strong water absorption and swelling. It is formed by weathering from volcanic ash. The inner surface of a gram amounts to 400 – 600 Square meters. Normal clay has only an inner surface of 2 square meters. This is the reason why bentonite forms particularly valuable tone-humus complexes. A good addition to compost!
areas of use
Bentonite is also used in construction technology. For example, in building waterproofing and even in dike construction. It also serves as a lubricant when driving tunnels and pipes and when vibrating narrow walls. It is also used as a supporting fluid for unsupported drilling. When geothermal heat is extracted by geothermal probes, the collector pipes in the ground are often surrounded with bentonite. The reason for this is that it binds the water and prevents the formation of cavities during freezing. In addition, there are numerous application possibilities.
About the charge
Bentonite particles are negatively charged. These properties result in an exceptionally high adsorption capacity of positive substances. Positively charged, for example, are substances that can be harmful and unhealthy for our body. Among other things: Heavy metals, acids, pesticide residues, histamine and even radioactive particles. This means that other substances adhere to the surface of the fine natural bentonite powder of Natao and accumulate there. If you flush it away, they disappear with it.
