National Standard PG natural sodium bentonite is an excellent low-cost option for use as an inorganic binder in production of iron ore pellets.  

High Strength Pellets

The high water absorbtion and swelling capacity of NATIONAL STANDARD PG promotes balling of iron ore concentrate.  This improves the green, drop, and dry strengths of the pellet which prevents the collapse of the pellets as they are transported to the kiln. 

Low Acid

The high-purity of NATIONAL STANDARD PG and its' inherent low silica content reduces slag formation from acid gangue in the steel making process.
