Attapulgite (Fuller’s Earth Clay)

Attapulgite is a naturally mined clay. It is one of the main types of Fuller’s Earth Clay. These clays can decolorize oil or other liquids without harsh chemical treatments. Attapulgite has very good colloidal properties. These include specific features in dispersion, high-temperature endurance, and salt and alkali resistance. Attapulgite also has certain plastic and adhesive characteristics.
Typical Applications

Attapulgite can be used as an absorbent for oil, grease, and animal waste (cat litter) and as a carrier for pesticides and fertilizers. It is also a filtering medium to clarify and decolorize active and inactive ingredients in beauty products. Some less common applications include as a paint filler, plaster, adhesive, and in pharmaceuticals.
