Bentonite is primarily composed of clay mineral montmorillonite, a magnesium-aluminum silicate. Bentonite hydrates in fresh water and disperses to varying degrees, depending on the nature of the cations that are loosely held and exchangeable (High cation exchange capacity) The presence of exchangeable sodium ions enhances hydration and dispersion. Divalent cations such as calcium reduce the degree to which the individual platelets disperse.
