CALCIUM & SODIUM BENTONITES

Bentonite Mine with Granulations

Mined from a naturally occurring mineral deposit in British Columbia, Canada, APL BENTONITES can be classified as the WORLD’S BEST BENTONITES.

Bentonite is a medium gray bentonite mined from a deposit near Princeton, British Columbia, Canada. This natural mineral deposit consists primarily of montmorillonite derived from pre-historic weathered volcanic ash.

 

Available Granulations:

Powder: -80 mesh

Fines: -36 mesh

Granular: -18 mesh

APL Bentonite has many uses, including the following:

FEED BINDING

Bentonite is used as a feed binder for livestock and poultry feeds. It is all natural, environmentally friendly and safe for all animals, with no antibiotics or chemicals added.

Bentonite can be used as a natural alternative to chemical feed binders.

SUBSTRATE STABILIZATION

Bentonite is used by several commercial Mushroom Growers in British Columbia as a growing medium to retain moisture.

The use of bentonite in operations, such as mushroom production, adds stability to compost and substrates used for growing mediums.

CLUMPING PET LITTER

APL Bentonite is the foundation of our scoopable pet litter products.

When used in pet litters, this bentonite provides a 99% dust free cat litter product, with excellent moisture, clumping, and odor control properties.

SEALANT

APL Bentonite is a high swelling bentonite that, when wet, swells, forming a water tight barrier.

Bentonite is often used by professional roofing companies as an emergency repair tool. In the case of an emergency repair situation, APL Bentonite can be applied to the damaged area and will work as a temporary sealant until further repairs can be made. APL Bentonite is an inexpensive and effective temporary solution that can help minimize water damage.

LEONARDITE

Leonardite from BC

Mined in British Columbia, Canada

An oxidations product of lignite.  Lignite is naturally formed from compressed vegetation or organic matter.

  • Humic and fulvic acid source
  • Brown or black

Commonly used for:


SOIL CONDITIONER

Helps hold and slowly release water, assists with retaining soil nutrients plus maintaining soil quality, and improves soil aeration and promotes root growth.

ZEOLITE

Zeolite Granulations

Mined in British Columbia, Canada

Belongs to a family of hydrated aluminosilicate minerals with a three-dimensional cage-like structure (similar to a honeycomb).  These highly porous granular minerals effectively absorb ions and molecules.  

Our Zeolite is a pure, natural mineral found in volcanic ash depositis from the mineral family heulandite-clinoptiilolite.

  • Unique physical and chemical characteristics
  • Great adsorption capacity
  • Good cation exchange capacity CEC 81
  • Hardness 4
  • Color white/gray
  • Melting point at 1000 degrees celcius
  • Will not burn
  • Will not dissolve in most liquids
  • Will not crush under normal conditions
  • Will not corrode

Commonly used for:

ARTIFICIAL TURF INFILL

Zeolite infill for artificial turf and pet grass captures ammonia and moisture helping eliminate pet odor from urine. Locks away odor
and moisture while cooling surface temperature.

INDUSTRIAL ABSORBENT

Quick on spills, Zeolites can absorb up to 70% of its weight in liquid. Will not break down in most liquids, prevents mud and traction loss creating a safer work environment.

TRACTION AID

This highly porous granular mineral does not dissolve in water or other inorganic solvents making it an  excellent traction aid. Will not hurt the environment and is safe for vegetation and compost.

FEED ADDITIVE

This premium Clinoptilolite formula is for use as a flowing/anti-caking agent in an amount not to exceed
two percent (2%) of the finished feed.

AMMONIA CONTROL

Clinoptilolite Zeolites effectively absorb ions and molecules. Liquids are simply absorbed and odors are eliminated in minutes.

SOIL CONDITIONER

Helps hold and slowly release water, assists with retaining soil nutrients plus maintaining soil quality, and improves soil aeration and promotes root growth.
