GEOBOND 25 KG BAG

Geobond

GeoBond® is a natural Miocene Diatomaceous Clay consisting of Diatomite (45%)and montmorillonite (55%). After mining, it is further processed using an exclusive wood burning method to enhance its active properties. The resulting product is a grey odorless granular material which has a density of about 40 lbs per cubic foot.

All-Natural and Safe

GeoBond® does not bind vitamins or minerals and contains safe levels of chemical elements. When assessed for its toxic equivalence factor using the World Health Organization scheme, GeoBond® tested negative for any dioxin and furan pollutants. GeoBond® is OMRI-listed (Organic Materials Review Institute) natural diatomaceous clay consisting of roughly 45% diatomite and 55% montmorillonite. Both substances are generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA under CFR 573.340 and 581.1 respectively.

Better than Bentonite

GeoBond® has been proven to be more effective solution than sodium bentonite; GeoBond® has a bipolar charge which allows it a broader spectrum approach when dealing with safe feed challenges. Since GeoBond® is non-swelling clay it does not bind vitamins and minerals. GeoBond® also is very cost effective when comparing it to bentonite.
