Bentonite is used inearthing applications as a conductive material to improve the electricalconductivity of the soil. Bentonite has a high cation exchange capacity, whichmeans it can attract and hold positively charged ions, such as sodium, calcium,and magnesium. These ions can help to improve the conductivity of the soil andreduce its resistance, allowing electrical currents to flow more easily.Bentonite holds moisture and is used as earthelectrode back fill compound to help lower soil resistivity. It has theproperty of absorbing and retaining water for longer duration of time comparedto traditional earthing compounds such as salt and coal, due to this the shelflife of earth conductivity lasts for longer period of time, also it protectsearth conductor from corrosion
