3. What is the use of organoclay in oil drilling fluids?

Organoclay is used as an additive in oil drilling fluids to make drilling and oil recovery easy. It also makes oil drilling efficient.


 4. What are the manufacturing processes of organoclay?

Organoclay is manufactured by reacting bentonite, which is a clay mineral with a quaternary ammonium salt.

To manufacture organoclay, you need to first break apart bentonite. This is done to help make the reaction faster and easier.

Organoclay is produced in a watery environment. The bentonite clay mineral is mixed with 4-6% concentrated phosphate dispersant water.

Since bentonite clay mostly has 5-60% non-clay impurities, it is purified by sedimentation and hydro cyclone treatment.

After purification, the next step is to react the bentonite clay with the quaternary amine. When the cleaned bentonite is added to the quaternary amine, an ion-exchange reaction occurs almost immediately.  This leads to the formation of organoclay.

The organoclay formed from this reaction is separated from the water, dried, and ground into a fine powder.

5. What is an organoclay rheological additive?

Now, before we dive into the meaning of organoclay rheological additive, let’s first look at the meaning of rheology and additive.

Rheology simply means the study of the flow behavior of a substance or matter with time. Additive means a substance added to something in small quantities to change its property.

So, with this understanding, let’s look at the meaning of organoclay rheological additive.

Organoclay rheological additive is a type of organoclay added to solvent-based systems, products or any substance to change their flow properties.

So, in essence, when organoclay is added to a product or system to control or alter its flow, it is called a rheological additive.

6. What types of organoclay do Camp Shining supply?

  • Intruduction Of Organoclay

    Organoclay, also named organic bentonite clay, organic thickener and rheology modifier,is a fine chemical product developed in recent years.It is a white or grayish white powder which is non-poisinous.


    Organoclay is a kind of inorganic mineral and organic ammonium complex. Organic bentonite clay is composed by inserting an organic covering agent through ion exchange technology.


    The raw material of organolay is Bentonite which has the characteristics of strong adsorption and swelling characteristics, good dispersion in water and good thixotropy in solution.


    The reason why bentonite has such characteristics is that,there are many clay minerals such as montmorillonite

    in bentonite.Montmorillonite has high hydration energy.It is a kind of aluminosilicate mineral with unique properties.


    When the temperature reaches 100 ~ 200 ℃, organoclay montmorillonite will lose water gradually. After dehydration, montmorillonite can reabsorb water molecules or other polar molecules. When they absorb water, they can also expand and exceed the original volume by several times.


    Swelling, high dispersion and thixotropy in organic media are the main characteristics of organoclay bentonite . And it’s easily soluble in hydrocarbon solvents; it has high physical and chemical properties, and its ability to disperse, expand are better than those of the same kind of sodium bentonite and lose water are lower. Besides,it has certain wet state and dry state cohesiveness,making it has a wide range of applications.

    Application purpose

    Organoclay bentonite are widely used in paint, ink, grease, oilfield drilling and other industries. But it can not be used for oil-water filtration.This is due to the poor adsorption capacity of natural bentonite for hydrophobic organic matter, which did not change when natural bentonite was transformed into organic bentonite clay.


    Organoclay bentonite can form gelatin in various organic solvents, Oils and liquid resins.Organoclay rheological additive has good thickening, thixotropy, suspension stability, high temperature stability, lubricity, film-forming property, water resistance and chemical stability.


     Organoclay rheological additive has important application value in the coating industry. Generally used as anti settling agent and thickening agent, it is used as anti corrosion coating, which has the characteristics of corrosion resistance, wear resistance, salt water erosion resistance, impact resistance and not easy to wet.


    In high-speed printing ink, according to the need to adjust the ink consistency, viscosity and control permeability.


    In high temperature grease lubricant,  Organoclay rheological additive are especially used to prepare high temperature grease suitable for high temperature and long time continuous operation.


    In oil drilling field , organoclay bentonite is the most basic lipophilic colloid and an indispensable additive. It can not only improve the viscosity and shear force of drilling fluid, but also reduce the filtration loss of oil based drilling fluid. Generally used as latex stabilizer.


    Organoclay bentonites used for glass fiber resin can improve thixotropy and suspension of the resin, so as to improve the storage stability of the resin, prevent the separation of glass and resin in the curing process, promote pumping, spraying and prevent sagging.

    In addition, Camp Shinning produce organoclays are also widely used in pesticides, plastics, electronics and other industries.

    Market situation and Prospect

    At present, the price of organoclay bentonites is about USD1000.00 per ton at a low price and USD2600.00 to USD2700.00 per ton at a high price. China’s domestic demand for grease has reached 400000 tons per year. 

    With the continuous progress of organic bentonite clay production and processing technology and interest driven, more bentonite enterprises began to produce organic bentonite.

    It is predicted that the demand for organobentonites in paint and coating industry alone will be very higher quantity per year; the demand for organoclay bentonites in the grease industry, especially  solvent based organoclay bentonite , will reach about more higher quantity ; the demand for organoclay bentonites in oil drilling and shale oil (gas) drilling will reach about 12000-20000 tons per year.


    In the next few years, the domestic market demand for organoclay bentonites will reach 300000-400000 tons per year, and organic bentonite clay will continue to develop in the direction of refinement, serialization and functionalization. 

    The main development direction of organobentonite industry is to actively carry out the research of organoclay bentonite production technology, speed up the industrialization transformation of achievements, expand the application field of organoclay rheological additive bentonite, and realize the comprehensive utilization of organobentonite with high efficiency and high added value.


    At last, it should be noted that the raw material for the preparation of organoclay bentonites must be raw bentonite,while the quality of bentonite, the structure, dosage, usage and preparation conditions of organic covering agent are the main factors affecting the quality of organic bentonite clay.


If this is your first time to purchase organoclay, understanding organic bentonite clay can be cumbersome.
