Proppant Technologies for Oil and Gas

Hexion creates advanced chemistries to improve well economics from drilling through production. Our proppant technologies portfolio includes resin coated proppants, proppant enhancement technologies and formation water control chemicals. Hexion was the first to develop and deploy mobile resin coating technology, offering efficient in-basin proppant coating in any location.

With over 35 years of experience, we are well positioned to provide products and solutions to maximize well economics.


Resin Coated Proppants

All of Hexion's curable resin coated proppants:

  • Help prevent proppant flowback
  • Reduce proppant fines generation
  • Minimize proppant embedment
