The microhardness variation with type of comonomer and thermal treatment is detailed in the last column of Table 5.
Using Basell's sperhizone technology to control comonomer distribution, Moplen RP1669 combines a low crystallinity component with a high crystallinity component; the first contributes to the softness while the second maintains mechanical properties such as tenacity.
Especially developed for extrusion-coating food applications, Lotader 3210 features a low comonomer content (around 9%) and is said to preserve the organoleptic properties of the packaging contents: dry foods such as peanuts and crisps, and coffee (a product prone to losing its aroma).
We have been focusing on the extension of gas-phase technology to higher comonomer content polyolefins.

In particular, a controlled amount of short-chain branches can be incorporated by polymerizing ethylene with a comonomer, such as an a-olefin, in order to improve the performances of the resins (13), (14).
Thermal fractionation successive self-nucleation and annealing was used to investigate the crystallization behavior and comonomer content of three HDPE samples.
Mitsui says that Notio is a syndiotactic elastomer, but not a syndiotactic polypropylene elastomer, which indicates a relatively high comonomer amount.
Even more impressive 'high heat' grades were achieved by incorporating alpha methyl styrene as a comonomer.
