HOUSTON--()--Ascend Performance Materials’ specialty chemicals division will showcase its growing portfolio of products designed for the oil and gas industry at the annual SPE International Conference on Oilfield Chemistry being held April 3-5 at the Conference Center at La Torretta in Montgomery, Texas.

Members of the company’s sales and technical teams will be on hand at booth #406 to answer questions about its new line of specialty amine grades for use in energy applications, including:

  • FlexaTramTM- BHM-170, a product based on (bis)-hexamethylenetriamine, features ultra-low metal content and an improved color profile for enhanced performance in several oil and gas applications, including use in corrosion inhibitor and water clarifier applications.
  • FlexaTramTM- DAM-200, a product based on diaminocyclohexane, features acid gas (H2S and CO2) scavenger for superior corrosion protection as well as enhancing chemical and mechanical resistance when used in epoxy coatings.
  • HexatranTM- 300 is a multifunctional product based on triaminononane that provides a cost-effective solution for use in oil and gas particularly as semi-permanent clay stabilizer intermediate, emulsifier and corrosion inhibition. It is also used in other applications like polyaspartic, urethane and epoxy coatings as well as in asphalt.
  • Flexatram-HMTTM is a new liquid hexamine product that is designed to support the resurging resin-coated proppant market. The company anticipates shipments of this line to begin from the facility located in Alvin, Texas as early as April.

The company will also be on hand to answer questions and provide additional information on these as well as other product offerings for oil & gas.
