Frac Sand | Proppant Sand

  • Frac Sand

    Frac sand is a high-purity quartz sand with very durable and very round grains. It is a crush-resistant material produced for use by the petroleum industry. It is used in the hydraulic fracturing process (known as "fracking") to produce petroleum fluids, such as oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids from rock units that lack adequate pore space for these fluids to flow to a well. Most frac sand is a natural material made from high-purity sandstone. An alternative product is ceramic beads made from sintered bauxite or small metal beads made from aluminum



    Frac sand sizes: 12-24, 16-32, 20-40, 30-50, 30-70, 40-70
