In addition to paraffin, microcrystalline wax, and petrolatum, several categories of wax blends, such as IGI's EVACOTE line for corrugated boxes, are produced at this facility. The Toronto location also has an emulsion blending plant, with produces products for our Enviro-Coatings line.

IGI's Oshkosh, WI operation was acquired in 1982 and upgraded in late 1992 to become a state-of-the-art, 60,000 square foot bulk storage, blending, and sub-dividing facility. The plant can provide custom blends in addition to IGI's other value added blends. Packaging capabilities include slabs, pellets, and unique "pouch" configuration.
