State limits are states of a granular material which are asymptotically attained by proportional deformation with constant deformation rate. Peloids (Greek: muds) are mixtures of hydrophilic fine-grained minerals, water, ions, gas bubbles and additives. Well-defined aluminium oxide and laponite peloids are experimentally investigated with respect to the influence of particle interactions on the course of state limits. The transferability of the results to natural peloids is exemplarily shown.
