Iron Ore Pelletizing
Blend of Sodium Bentonite to meet the exacting specifications of our customers for metallurgical binding applications.
For over 25 years, we have customized the blend of our quality western montmorillonite clay to act as a binding agent for metallurgical fines. When mixed with fines, the surface properties that are attributed to the crystalline structure of montmorillonite will bind the material into a pack that can be converted into pellets. TACOBOND™ will improve the green strength of the pellets and maintain consistent performance characteristics throughout your process.
A typical application for TACOBOND is the production of Iron Ore Pellets that are commonly used as feed material for blast furnaces for pig iron production.
