Bentonite Clay is used in pyrotechnics to make endplugs. Typically a small amount of the dry clay is poured into a cardboard tube. A wooden dowel is inserted and firmly hit with a hammer to form a solid clay plug. Bentonite Clay is also used in adhesives, ceramics, cosmetics, and for purifying transformer oil. Bentonite also has the interesting property of absorbing relatively large amounts of protein molecules from solutions. In winemaking it is used to remove protein from wines. For making rocket nozzles, we recommend our Rocket Nozzle Mix as it is engineered for higher temperatures.
