CARBOBOND KRYPTOSPHERE LD technical data sheet

The higher-strength CARBOBOND KRYPTOSPHERE LD resin-coated low-density, ultra high-performance ceramic proppant is effective at greater well depths, temperatures and stresses than any comparable ceramic proppant. CARBOBOND KRYPTOSPHERE LD also requires 20% less proppant by weight than any resin-coated intermediate-density ceramic proppant and 30% less proppant than any resin-coated bauxite ceramic proppant. It is designed with high cyclic loading tolerance, and the bonded proppant pack reduces the effective stresses encountered at deeper depths.


  • KRYPTOSPHERE LD provides an ultraconductive, low-density proppant as the substrate
  • Specially formulated for maximum compatibility with complicated frac fluids used in deeper wells
  • Bonded proppant pack reduces effective stress on proppant
  • High cyclic loading tolerance
  • Resin coating completely encapsulates substrate
  • Bonds in the fracture with temperature and closure


  • Versatile—expands the usable application range (depth, temperature and stress) to replace intermediate-density and bauxite
  • No proppant flowback—eliminates subsequent equipment damage, expense of cleanouts and disposal
  • Maintains conductivity—resin coating prevents fines from being released
  • Maintains particle integrity—prevents chemical attack on substrate
  • No additional chemical costs—since no fluid chemistry change is required, the job can be pumped as designed
