Our minerals


We know as nobody the, mineral, our raw material.

MYTA is the manufacturer of absorbent clays with 5 own mines of:
SEPIOLITE, ATTAPULGITE and BENTONITE.

SEPIOLITE

It is a natural, very low-density, porous mineral with a high specific surface area. This non-swelling clay has a great absorption capacity due to its micro-porous crystalline structure. It absorbs liquids, vapours and odours and can absorb its own weight of water. Our sepiolite is of sedimentary origin and is characterised by its greyish colour and high odour absorption.

ATTAPULGITE

This is a natural mineral with very similar characteristics to those of sepiolite: very low density, high porosity and high specific surface area. Like sepiolite, these characteristics make it an absorbent clay. The attapulgite from our mines is even lighter than our sepiolite. It is of sedimentary origin and has a natural reddish colour.

BENTONITE

This is a natural, low-density mineral with great absorption capacity. It is a plastic clay since due to its composition and crystalline structure it swells when hydrated, endowing it with a binding property. Our national bentonites are pinkish in colour, originating from the in-situ alteration of granite. At the plant they undergo a process of cation exchange to convert them into sodium benonites which enhances their super-absorbent capacity. Our international bentonites are from Turkey and they are naturally formed sodium bentonites. They are white and originate from the hydrothermal alteration of volcanic ash.
