Hexion, Wayfinder Partner on Resin-Coated Proppants


Hexion Inc. and Wayfinder Corp. announced a partnership to better serve resin-coated proppant users in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin.

This strategic partnership joins Hexion’s resin and chemical expertise with Wayfinder’s new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and logistics network. The Wayfinder facility in Obed, Alberta, Canada, will produce Hexion’s full product portfolio, including Prime Plus proppants, the most used resin coated proppant in Canada.

“We are very excited to partner with Wayfinder. By combining Hexion’s advanced resin chemistries with Wayfinder’s world-class manufacturing facility, we can continue to provide our customers with quality products and the performance they have come to expect,” said Mark Alness, senior vice president, Americas. “We will be able to better serve our customers and maximize the customer experience by utilizing the strengths of both organizations today, and as the market evolves.”

“Partnering with Hexion to provide clients with resin coated proppant enables Wayfinder to provide a broader spectrum of quality products and further penetrate the resin coated sand market in Canada, while increasing the utilization of our Obed manufacturing facility,” said Chad Bremner, president and CEO. “We are pleased to be aligned with Hexion in manufacturing and distributing their leading suite of products.”
