    Clay can help material to compost into a rich mineral dense fertilizer for planting and producing crops.
  • Manure Composting & Odor Reduction

    Because of the highly absorbent properties, mixing mineral clays with manure and fertilizer can help reduce the odor that is emitted. The clay acts as an odor control agent because of its ability to absorb and adsorb liquids gases, and suspended matters – including methane, carbon dioxide, and sulfur compounds.
  • Slow Release Water Management

    Because of the highly absorbent properties, mixing mineral clays with manure and fertilizer can help reduce the odor that is emitted. The clay acts as an odor control agent because of its ability to absorb and adsorb liquids gases, and suspended matters – including methane, carbon dioxide, and sulfur compounds.
  • Gardening

    Minerals found in clay is a popular natural solution for gardening. The mineral supplementation boosts the health of soil and overall crop yield.
  • Cannabis

    Increase crop yield and density by adding a diversity of vitamins and minerals plus water retention, allowing for greater results in natural growing environments.
  • Animal Feed

    Mineral clays are used with standard animal feed to boost an animal’s immune systems and alkalize the gut. These minerals can take the form of salt licks, top feed, or be mixed with water.
  • Dairy Cows/Cattle

    Mineral enrichment has shown to reduce mycotoxins and aflatoxins in dairy cows and cattle. Studies have shown a significant reduction of mycotoxins in the milk of dairy cows and increased maturation in cattle.
  • Pigs

    Studies have shown that mineral supplementation for pigs significantly reduces stress levels and reach maturation level for slaughter at an average of 2 weeks earlier. Pigs were fighting less and after feeding, would return to their areas for a nap. Before mineral supplementation, these pigs would normally fight.
  • Fish

    Mineral supplementation for fish has been shown to increase size of fish as well as fertility and health of the eggs that were laid. Using minerals in the water can also help filter the water fish are living in.
  • Chicken

    Minerals introduced into daily feed can reduce toxicity and provide a diverse and enriched diet for increased size, better health, reduced outbreaks, and egg production.
  • Animal Husbandry

    Enriching livestock and pet diets with minerals have been proven to yield higher production, boost immunity, and decrease stress levels with less cost to the environmental and a totally natural solution.
  • Pet Food Additives

    Mineral supplementation in domestic pets is becoming increasingly popular over the last several years as pet owners are learning about the real benefits livestock are reaping from a completely natural solution. Minerals can be an additive to food or mixed in during processing for pet producers.
    • Slurry Walls & Embankments

      Bentonite is often used to build slurry walls due to its ability to flex and swell, yet remain structured. It is highly absorbent and adsorbent, making it a naturally logical solution.
    • Cement & Mortar

      Different clays are used for cement and mortar purposes. Bentonite aids in the water retention, keeping the cement and mortar pliable without being watery. Gypsum aids in dalying setting to allow proper application as well as cooling of the chemical reaction that takes place when making cement.
    • Asphalt & Roads

      In the construction industry, clay improves asphalt’s quality and durability to maintain throughout the years. The substance created is more dense and flexible due to its ability to fill in the smaller cracks while also swelling and absorbing moisture with the constant moisture changes throughout the day and seasons. It is also a natural alternative to other fillers, leaving less impact at the site of use.
    • Pond Linings

      Using Bentonite as a slurry for pond liner is an extremely natural and effective solution. It has taken off in recent years in the man made lake building industry as a quick and organic solution. Plus you can do this without draining the pond beforehand.
    • Landfill liners

      To reduce seepage and maintain an impermeable barrier, bentonite is commonly used in the lining of landfills as a natural method to keep landfill contained for years to come.
    • Landscape Maintenance

      Clay is used all across the landscape field. From soil amendments, to water purification, to building man made ponds, and even maintaining the appearance of natural and artificial turf, there are multiple functions and uses for clay.
    • Golf Courses

      Golf turf is one of the largest consumers of clay. The clay helps maintain the turf and golfing area without additional care and cost.
    • Artificial Turf Infill & Liner

      Zeolite is a natural, inert, and organic solution to turf lining and infill. Many of the existing artificial turf out there that has rubber infill is slowly being replaced by Zeolite as a safer alternative.
    • Absorbent & Adsorbent

      Because of it’s highly absorbent and adsorbent properties due to its negative ‘magnetic’ charge,, clay minerals are used to absorb toxins, odors, residue, and other materials that have no place in the product.
    • Oil & Chemical Spills

      The presence of heavy metals and toxins in the environment are of significant concern due to their toxicity and potential damage to humans, animals and plants. The application of clay minerals is a promising and responsible technique in the environmental cleaning process.
    • Mold Absorption & Removal

      Mold and mildew thrive on excess moisture and clay can help to reduce this moisture and eliminate the fungus and mold.
    • Ammonia Absorption

      Clay has the ability to absorb and remove toxic ammonia in liquids, soil, and in the air.
    • Odor Absorbent

      Zeolites can be used to remove odors and moisture from the industrial and consumer environments such as fridges, locker rooms, bathrooms, closets, shoes, automobiles, and more. Zeolite can also be cleaned, recharged, and reused multiple times.
    • Paint Additives & Coatings

      Found in many paints as a pigment, thickener, and as an adhesion/coating agent for even consistency, brighter tints, and increased adhesion.
    • EMI Shielding

      Clay is now being explored in alternative methods of non-metallic EMI shielding.
  • Water Purification

    Commonly used as a component in filtration systems as well as consumer grade water filters, our minerals remove most heavy metals and toxins.
  • Heavy Metal Absorption

    Clay has a highly absorbent property, and when ‘activated’ by liquid, it creates a magnetic charge that binds to heavy metals. It creates a negative ion that binds with positive ions giving a highly detoxing property.
  • Wine & Beer Clarification

    Beverage purification is a popular industry and use for Bentonite clay. The wine industry uses Bentonite to bind to the sediment in wine. Because of it’s highly alkaline nature and natural properties, it does not affect the wine at all and purifies.
  • Fuel Filtration & Clarification

    Bentonite is used in filtration and clarification of fuels, removing surfactants, oxidation products, additives, acids, and other polar compounds. Also aids in the clarifications of oils, removing discoloration and particulates.
  • Decalcification

    For removal of calcium on equipment and systems, clay minerals can reach areas where agitation equipment cannot..
  • Aquariums

    Large scale and private aquarium owners use porous clay to filter and purify water for their plants and fish in a natural, non harsh way.
    • Cosmetics

      Bentonite is a common ingredient in many detoxifying cleansers, facial treatments, and lotions.
    • Facial Clay
