The largest established manufacturer's of a wide range of specialty clays in
India, CUTCH OIL & ALLIED INDUSTRIES (1949) PRIVATE LIMITED is also one
of the most experienced and skilled player in the field of Organoclays,
Refined Bentonites, China Clays (Kaolins), Attapulgites and Cationic Surfactants.
Established in 1949 in the clay rich belt of Kachchh Mandvi, Gujarat in India,
we commenced manufacturing operations of non-edible oils and value added derivatives.
Within a decade we steadily progressed into a rapidly growing and efficient
corporate entity . Armed with a strong in house R&D and indigenous technology,
we rapidly and steadfastly diversified our operations around the clay rich
resources of our corporate township Kachchh Mandvi, India, into manufacturing
and processing of value added refined Bentonite Clays and technology intensive
Specialty Organoclay Gellants and Rheological Additives under the present brand
name 'Smectone' Clays.
Commensurate with the moving times, we effectively planned expansion and prepared
ourselves with strategically located units to take on the growing overseas
Organoclay markets and to compete internationally with our established quality
'Smectone' Organoclays and services in the global arena. The company is today
successfully and competitively establishing itself in the growing global markets
with indigenous technology and a full range of quality products.
We are manufacturers and exporters of Organoclays, Bentonite Clay, Refined
Bentonites, China Clays (Kaolins), Attapulgites and Cationic Surfactants. Our
product range includes :
SMECTONE® ORGANOCLAYS :
are superior and established import substitute rheological additives, gellants
and thickeners equivalent to internationally renowned organoclays for all solvent
borne systems, organic liquids and oils where thickening, gelling, anti setting,
anti sagging, body, tack and viscosity controlling characteristics are desired.
The full Smectone Clay range performs effectively across the aliphatic and
aliphatic/aromatic blend of solvents, including low, low - medium, medium -
high polarity range with activation as in conventional organoclays and without
activation for super and easy dispersion as in 2nd generation organoclays.
Incorporation is simplified to yield consistency and uniformity in major formulations
with simple mechanical action (milling / shearing / grinding) and with or without
chemical activation (polar solvent) as desired.
REFINED BENTONITES :
mined and blended, superior graded Bentonite Clays are stringently processed
for quality consistency and refined for specialty performances to yield high
viscosity, gelling and anti settling characteristics in water and all aqueous
formulations including coatings and textured finishes and coatings.
We also manufacture and offer superior fine Bentonites equivalent to IP / BP
specifications for Pharmaceutical, Cosmetic and Personal Care Products. Special
advantages and characteristics include purity, fine particle sizing, lubricity,
absorbancy, bonding strength and ease of dispersion tailored to end user requirements.
Ideally recommended for Feed Industry as Toxin Binders.
PURE CHINA CLAYS / KAOLINS :
are selectively mined and processed pure Kaolin Clays with microfine particle
sizing and high kaolinitic content of consistent quality and purity for Filler,
Art Material, Ceramic, FRP, Zeolites and Construction Chemical Industries.
Also offer superfine HRC clays for specialty Automotive Tyre and Rubber Industries.
BENGEL CLAYS :
These are selectively
mined, blended and processed refined specialty clays of the Montmorillonite
- Attapulgite - Ball Clay family specially processed and micronized to yield
fine particle sizing, controlled gelling, antisettling, plasiticity and thixotropic
characteristics in all aqueous and alcohol / water based formulations across
a wide pH range. Their uses are in Textured Finishes & Coating, Water Based
Coatings, Gels, Foundry Chemicals, Washes, Pharmaceuticals, etc. Rheology as
per user specs.
