Chemical products

Many know about our production of fuels, you hopefully use them to fill up your car. But your touch points with Imperial and our products likely go way beyond your weekly fill up.

Situated on-site with our refinery in Sarnia is our chemical plant, where we make many products including polyethylene, naphtha intermediates, vinyl intermediates and aromatics – the basis for 1,000’s of products Canadians use every day.

Industries from construction, oil and gas and agriculture to millions of consumer products and packaging rely on our petrochemical products, but here are a few of our favourites:


Part of the solution

Our innovative research is helping us make stronger, lighter and lower-cost plastic, with reduced environmental impact in both production and end-of-life handling.

Lighter, stronger car components made of our high-performance rubber or plastic, such as hoses, window and door seals, tires, dashboards and bumpers, help reduce the weight of your vehicle and contribute to improved fuel efficiency.

Responsible Care® 

Canadians are more concerned than ever about the effects of chemicals on their health and the environment.

As a member of the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC, formerly CCPA), we not only use CIAC’s Responsible Care® initiative, we played an important role in creating the program that was conceived in Canada and launched in 1985. The Responsible Care® ethic for the safe and environmentally sound management of chemicals has been adopted by the chemical industry in 53 countries around the world since 1992.

Integrating the Responsible Care® principles into our chemical division business practices means we dedicate ourselves, our technology and our business practices to sustainability – and to the betterment of society, the environment and the economy.
