Technical Information
Product Description

ARMONITE is a natural sodium bentonite composed of montmorillonite and volcanic ash. It is a free flowing product with special waterproofing absorbing sealing, molding and bonding properties.

When ARMONITE is added to water and activated by a mixer rotating at high speed, it will produce a high viscosity mix with low permeability and lubrication power.

Advantages
  • Excellent sweilling properties
  • High thermal stability
  • High plasticity and tensile strength
  • Good sealing and waterproofing properties
  • Excellent absorbing properties
  • Good bonding and molding properties
