Civil Engineering Applications

These applications generally utilize the thixotrapic and filter cake forming properties of bentonite. Canbensan produces Canins for civil engineering applications.

Common applications include diaphragm wall construction, piling, tunneling, dam sealing, waste containment, brick and cement making.

Canins is used as an intermediary material in brick making for enhanced production improving green and dry strength, increasing water resistance and boosting yield. Canins increases the water proofing of finished cement.

Canins can be used in asphalt emulsions to hold the oil and water phases together in a stable emulsion. It offers higher activity, longer equipment life, batch to batch consistency and low acid demand.

Civil Engineering Applications


Canins is packed as 40 kg kraft and plastic lined bags or 500 kg big bags.
