Attapulgite clay is a valuable clay belonging to the Fuller's Earth group. The high absoprtion capacity of this mineral clay comes from its compound structure known as hydrated magnesium aluminium silicate, which consists of invisible tiny channels that absorb liquids. The structure of Attapulgite is characterized by 3-layer strips that joined at the corners. This results in a unique checkerboard structure of natural voids that can absorb or be filled with liquid.
HUDSON has access to the only known highest quality Attapulgite resources in Western Australia. Our Attapulgite raw materials are free from mineral acid, lightweight with high natural porosity has good flow ability. These Attapulgite properties enable HUDSON to product finished products that have consistent particle size distribution and superior absorption & adsorption capabilities.

History of Attapulgite

Attapulgite was used in combination with indigo dyes derived from the leaves of anil (indigofera suffruiticosa) by the Maya people of Central America to produce a bright blue colour, called Maya Blue. The vibrant colour can be seen on potery, murals and other artifacts produced centuries ago. The unusual and dirable pigment remains vibrant today long after othe colours have faded away (Source: )
