Terves Publishes Information about Several New Products on its New Website
Terves' website now has information about several of its recently launched and under-development products including new high temperature and fresh water dissolvable alloys, pumpable and expandable materials, tracers, and water preservation products.
By: Terves Inc.
Mentioned below is a brief overview of the product families that are commercially available or are under the final stages of development:
Dissolvable Metals: Terves' patented dissolvable alloys, TervAlloy™, provide reliable dissolution rates with a variety of fluids, temperatures, and pressures. Fresh water or brine; delayed or triggered coatings; high strength, hardness or ductility; low/high temperatures – we offer a variety of products to meet your needs. TervAlloy™ is available in solid and tubular forms as well as fully-machined components.
Dissolvable Polymers: Elementum™ is a family of patent-pending high-performance, moldable and machinable elastomer that is designed to fragment and dissolve into tiny particles after exposure to downhole brine solution at a variety of temperatures and pressures. Elementum™ DE50 is available today in a variety of sizes and can be machined to print.

Proppants: Terves' Proppants offer specific functionality based on change in environment, including passage of time, change in temp./pressure, and/or chemical agents. Our in-situ crosslinkable proppant, LocProp™, and expandable proppant based on phase change materials, XOProp™ are available today to enable efficient operations and generate a higher ROI from each well.
Expandable Products: Terves is developing a family of Expandable Materials that expand when exposed to an external stimulus. Our first product, Exalon™, is an expanding structural polymer that is available in pumpable form for in-situ fracture initiation, to counteract embedment and widen fine fractures in clay-containing (softer) formations, and also for actuating tools such as self-deploying centralizers.
Other Product Platforms: We are a research-based product-focused organization that develops disruptive new products. Terves is currently in the final stages of development for High-Energy Density Capacitors that have demonstrated 5X higher energy density than any known capacitors, and net-shaped nanocomposite cermets that represent the "holy grail" of materials – the hardness and strength of ceramics with the toughness of steel.
Terves is the partner of choice for several of the leading oil and gas majors, service companies and OEM's. Terves has a proven history of developing new and proprietary products and solutions for some of the most compelling problems faced in oil and gas exploration, completion and production.
Terves' ability to quickly and cost-effectively ideate, develop, test, validate and then manufacture and deploy products and solutions at scale is what drives some of the largest companies in the oil and gas companies to trust Terves to solve their most critical operational challenges. Since, its inception Terves and its parent company Powdermet have worked with over 50 Fortune 500 companies to develop new products and solutions. Unlike other R&D organizations that are focused on research, Terves is a product-focused organization and works with the end-goal of developing a high-value solution that can be deployed at scale.
