Surfactant Smooths Adoption of Resin-Coated Sand

Covia recently identified a powerful new surfactant that improves the performance of resin-coated sand at a lower cost. This chemistry more effectively wets our resin-coated sand, which also improves flowability, and was implemented at all resin-coating facilities. These characteristics offer numerous benefits, including: 

  • Less material build-up on equipment;
  • More efficient delivery and pumping;
  • Stability at room temperature; and,
  • Elimination of a post-treatment step.

Together, this improves the value of our resin-coated sands, increasing growth potential.
