Toilet Sand for Pets

Summary of uses

Toilet sand for pets can be classified roughly by the principal material into three types: mineral-based type (made mainly of bentonite), paper-based type (made mainly of a highly absorbent resin, sawdust, soy pulp, or other organic raw materials), and hybrid-type made of minerals and paper.
The KUNIMINE GROUP manufactures and sells bentonite-based toilet sand for pets. With its strong water-absorption effect, deodorizing effect, and caking property, which allows the clay to aggregate after absorbing water, bentonite immediately absorbs urine of pets and firmly solidifies it, allowing easy disposal of their excrement.

Characteristics of different types of toilet sand for pets (pellet, crushed, and granular types)


Pellet type

Larger pellets are not easily caught in pads of cats.
Scattering of sand and stirring up of dust can be reduced significantly.


Crushed type

Cat litter excellent in odor-eliminating effect, ease of solidification and cost effectiveness.


Granular type

Granular cat litter that is closest to natural sand and solidifies into small lumps.
This type is recommended for toilet training for cats or for toilet sand for hamsters.

Manufacturing process (for pellet type)


Addition of water to raw materials and mixing

Mix bentonite and water in a mixer in preparation for granulation.

Make granules shaped appropriately for toilet sand by using a granulating machine.
Because of the nature of bentonite, it can be granulated just by impregnating it with water.

Manufacturing process2


Dry the product.
