SLS Chemical Corporate Video

Who is SLS Chemical?

SLS is a small-mid sized, Canadian owed company based in Edmonton, Alberta.  Founded in 2008, SLS’s has become a critical supplier many pulp mills and municipalities in Western Canada. SLS’s Senior management team has been selling water soluble polymers and specialty chemicals for over 26 years. We have partners, agents and representatives in China, Canada and the USA ready to help you choose the best fit programs for your application.

Who do we serve?

SLS Chemicals is a supplier of water treatment chemicals to the pulp and paper, mining, enhanced oil recovery (EOR), petrochemical, SAGD, tailings thickening, industrial and municipal water and wastewater treatment industries. We understand your operations and customers very well. The “value added” supply chain model has evolved over the past decade and SLS has responded to many years of its customers asking for very specific services and low cost alternatives where technical services can take many forms. Until now, that option did not exist.

SLS provides high quality water soluble polymers and other water treatment chemistries for a variety of industrial processes at a very low cost. This allows our customers to focus on their operations knowing that they are being provided with the most cost effective programs available.

Why SLS Chemical?

SLS Chemical Inc. is a different kind of chemical company. It was created from a desire to offer our clients to be more involved in product selection and service delivery. We do this by finding the best manufacturers and creating unique partnerships with them. We only buy from manufactures who produce the goods we sell.  We eliminate all “middle-men” and take advantage of economies of scale.  From this foundation, SLS has grown into one of the largest dry polymer importers in Canada, specializing in polymer based chemistry for water clarification, sludge dewatering and scale control. Our consulting services include technical/operator training and procurement management across several industry sectors.

Our Manufacturers

Where do we get our polymer from? Currently, we have 3 manufacturing partners in China and 2 in the United States and Canada who produce our product lines. Our partners are global majors. Our supply chain into Canada is well established. Chemical capacity, shipping logistics, warehousing and technical services are in place in Canada so you do not have to worry about running out of product or not receiving support. For more information go to our Contact Us page and we will be happy to explain our process.
