CARBOTAG technical data sheet

Chemically-tagged traceable technology


  • Non-radioactive taggant that can be added to any CARBO proppant during manufacturing
  • More than 20 taggants available
  • Upon proppant flowback, the taggant is easily identified with routine analysis
  • Taggants do not degrade over time
  • Does not alter the physical properties or conductivity of the proppant

Identifies the precise well or fracture stage that flows back proppant

CARBO uses a patented process to add unique chemical markers—called taggants—to any CARBO proppant during manufacturing. If CARBOTAG proppant is found in a common separation facility, it can be easily determined which fracture or stage is allowing proppant to flow back.
