POLYOLEFINS: Controlling Polyolefin Properties by In-Reactor Blending, 1 - Polymerization Process, Precise Kinetics, and Molecular Properties of UHMW-PE Polymers

Martin Ruff*, Christian Paulik

A multi-stage polymerization method using a dynamic power-compensating reactor for preparing bimodal PE in-reactor blends is presented. Control of ultrahigh-molecular-weight fractions is achieved by isothermal, isobaric, and isoperibolic steady-state polymerization conditions in a slurry.
