Various polymerization methods produce polyethylenes with broad molecular weight distributions, as well as blends such as post reactor melt blending, single stage polymerization with mixed catalysts and multistage polymerization.
Polymerization is carried out in a single reactor gas-phase where both catalysts are active, resulting in blends including polyethylene with long chain branching and high molecular weights.
