Materials used for proppants include naturally occurring sand grains called frac sand (upper left in the photo below), resin-coated frac sand (upper right), high-strength ceramic proppants (lower left), and resin-coated ceramic proppants (lower right). The size, shape, and mechanical strength of proppants influence the integrity of the newly created fractures which affects the flow of oil and gas out of the well.
