Hydraulic fracturing is growing- and so is the use of proppants, or “frac balls”. There are three main reasons for choosing phenolic material for proppants. The first reason is its high compression load, or the amount of pressure that phenolic material can withstand. Second, phenolic material is resistant to chemical absorption, which makes it very durable for the oil & gas industry. Third, phenolic material is easy to mold and capable of realizing specific gravities, which is needed for hydraulic fracturing.
