Difference between calcium base and sodium base

2022-03-11


The type of interlayer cation of bentonite determines the type of bentonite. When the interlayer cation is Na, it is called sodium bentonite; When the interlayer cation is Ca, it is called calcium bentonite. The properties of sodium montmorillonite (or sodium bentonite) are better than those of calcium. However, the distribution of calcareous soil in the world is far wider than that of sodium soil, so in addition to strengthening the search for sodium soil, it is necessary to modify the calcareous soil to become sodium soil.
