SB Prime™ Proppants

Description

SB Primec

 

 

 

 

SB Prime™ proppant is an advanced, field proven, premium curable resin coated sand available in a 20/40 mesh size. With Hexion’s Stress Bond™ technology, the proppant bonds in the fracture with closure stress, providing high conductivity and proppant flowback control.

Typical Applications

Fracture treatments:

  •  At closure stress up to 10,000 psi [69 MPa] 
  •  Bottom-hole static temperatures from 160 - 450°F [71 - 232°C]
  •  Where high conductivity and proppant flowback control are desired

Technical Advantages and Benefits

  • Reduces proppant fines generation and migration
  • Helps prevent proppant flowback
  • Stress Bond technology helps prevent wellbore consolidation
  • Frac fluid and breaker friendly
