Hydraulic Fracturing

Silicone solutions improve performance
of resin-coated proppants.


Enhance proppant performance and improve conductivity with the use of resin-coated proppants

Hydraulic fracturing is used in oil and gas well to increase the permeability of the formation to enhance production. Hydraulic fracturing creates a fissure in the formation and proppant is delivered into this fissure to hold it open and facilitate hydrocarbon flow to the wellbore.

Dow Corning's silicon-based solutions can improve the adhesion of the resin to the proppant. Processing aids from Dow Corning also improve anti-caking performance during production of the proppant.

Dow Corning® brand proppant additives are supplied in a wide product range with different functionalities to address your specific needs.
