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.
(1) The first-generation polyethylenes, which had high wear rates, have been superseded by newer highly cross-linked UHMWPEs that have led to reduced wear by 40% to 100%.
Polyethylenes synthesized by the copolymerization of ethylene and [alpha]-olefins with either Ziegler-Natta or metallocene catalysts are major commodity polymers worldwide.
A guide for A-C polyethylenes and copolymers is available.
Company's A-C polyethylenes and copolymers are low-molecular-weight, ethylene-based polymers that can be used as lubricants, flow modifiers, release aids, and dispersion aids.
The mechanical properties of the polyethylene-clay hybrids, neat polyethylenes without clay, and the polyethylene-clay composite are summarized in Table 2.
