Preferred Sands Opens Preferred Technology Center in Houston, Texas

Preferred Sands opened the Preferred Technology Center in Houston, Texas. Born from Preferred's dedication to industry innovation, this expansion will allow Preferred to further incubate and collaborate in developing high performance technology solutions for more efficient and cost effective well sites. Preferred's Technology Center will continue to develop Preferred's clean line of resin coatings, RCS Garnet and RCS Pearl, for both high and low temperature wells. The environmentally-sensitive Preferred RCS resin-coated sand product line, developed in conjunction with The Dow Chemical Company, is the market's leading alternative to phenolic-based resins since launching in 2012, and the only low-temperature resin-coated proppant with a built-in activation mechanism, creating a more efficient and safer low-temperature down-well environment. The new facility aligns with Preferred's keenness for partnering with best-in-class industry leaders to address and solve for industry difficulties and inefficiencies. Preferred is committed to continuing to innovate the market with sustainable distribution and technology solutions. The Preferred Technology Center creates a new hub for industry-responsive innovation in one of the most active geographic regions for hydraulic fracturing.
