As mentioned earlier, sodium bentonite is best known for its swelling capacity. When fully saturated, it can swell 12 to 15 times bigger than the initial dry volume. This high capacity for water absorption of the sodium bentonite creates the desirable plastic feature and keeps the moist bentonite from being crushed or broken. Therefore, with it becoming dry or wet for infinite times or through the cycle of melting and freezing for a lot of times, this feature does not change.
Regarding the platelet structure of the bentonite, it is porous and cover an incredible area of 600 to 800 square meters per gram. Hence, less than 10 grams of SOFONITE 2 in 1, if fully spread, can cover a whole football field.
