kRT 100™ Proppants


kRT 100

Hexion’s kRT 100™ proppant is an economical, curable resin coated sand now available in 100 mesh. The resin coating supports the intended use of 100 mesh within the fracture network, but now provides all the traditional benefits of a resin coated sand such as proppant flowback control and fewer proppant fines. Additionally, the tailored resin system reduces dust generation, which helps improve health and safety on location.

Typical Applications

Fracture treatments:     

  • At closure stress up to 12,000 psi [83 MPa]  
  • At bottom-hole static temperatures from 130 - 400°F [54 - 204°C]
  • Where smaller mesh size curable resin coated proppants are desired

Technical Advantages and Benefits

  • Helps prevent flowback and rearrangement
  • Reduces proppant fines generation and migration
  • Reduces dust generation
  • Stress Bond™ technology helps prevent wellbore consolidation
