Technical Data Sheet



Low Temperature Consolidation Aid



Hexion’s AcTivator™ consolidation aid is a low temperature consolidation aid for curable resin coated proppants (RCPs).  This advanced product will help provide low-temperature consolidation of our SB Prime™, Prime Plus™, SB Excel™, SiberProp™, and OilPlus™ proppants.

Our AcTivator Oil™ consolidation aid is available for use in oil-based treatment fluids.  Please consult your Hexion representative for more information on optimized concentration recommendations based on individual well conditions.



  • For reservoirs which typically produce proppant after fracturing
  • For reservoirs with bottom-hole static temperatures in the range from 70 - 160°F [21 - 71°C] 


  • Allows for consolidation to occur with Hexion's curable RCPs in low temperature applications
  • Compatible with most aqueous fracturing fluid additives (e.g., gelling agents, breakers, cross-linkers, surfactants, foamers, etc.)
  • Can be an excellent candidate for use with Hexion's resin coated proppants


  • The use of excessive AcTivator consolidation aids may cause oversoftening and sloughening of the resin coating
  • May be incompatible with gelled oil frac fluids, use AcTivator Oil consolidation aid in these cases
  • As with all chemicals, test for fluid compatibility prior to using and consult your Hexion representative for proper usage


  • Should be mixed into all the fluid in which curable RCP is carried
  • Should be added before the cross-linker
  • Loading should be based on the liquid portion of the slurry only
  • Lab testing should be performed to determine the requirements for fluid compatibility
