TSB pellets are cylindrical bentonite rods (granules) made from 100 % activated sodium bentonite. A characteristic of TSB pellets is its considerable water absorption capacity, as a result of which it swells up considerably when in contact with water.
The large swelling capacity makes TSB pellets suitable for:
The complete repair of drilled-through or damaged clay layers
Securing spring-loaded charges in the ground for seismological study
Making dams, dykes and water barriers non-water-permeable
Rapidly sealing damaged wells, etc..
Careful and even dosing are required for an optimal result.
Bridge formation can occur in the event of dosing too rapidly.
– The assurance of a strong, virtually watertight layer which can only be achieved using a pure sodium bentonite
– Has extra swelling capacity for sealing irregularities in the borehole wall or difficult to reach cavities
– Easy to apply
– Absolutely environmentally-friendly
