Cross-fractionation techniques such as SEC-TREF or TREF-SEC were used for the deconvolution of bivariate MMD/CCD distributions of polyolefin copolymers. The results were used to identify the number of active catalyst sites and the relation of the type of active sites with the microstructure of polyolefins produced with multiple-site catalysts . Model ethylene-1-butene and ethylene-1-octene copolymers were used to validate the approach. The correlation of molecular structure and mechanical properties of ethylene-1-hexene copolymer film grade resins produced by a metallocene catalyst by varying the molar mass and branching distribution was studied by Alamo and co-workers .
The major share in global applications of LLDPE is film applications that include food and non-food packaging, shrink/stretch film and non-packaging applications. Metallocene or single-site catalysts revolutionized LLDPE research. New resins were synthesized that allow faster and more stable operations along with improved downgauging of films. Processing of LLDPE grades is also facilitated by improved and more effective methods. Today, major application areas of LLDPE are agricultural greenhouse films, multi-layer cast stretch films, lamination packaging films and medium to heavy duty bags.
The TREF curve of the random EO copolymer is quite representative for a LLDPE. The online FTIR detection shows that the octene content of the copolymer decreases with increasing TREF elution temperature. The highest eluting fraction does not contain octene and is, therefore, PE. The elution temperature of 96 C is in agreement with linear (high density) PE. The copolymer components eluting between 30 C and 90 C are due to EO copolymer molecules with different EO contents. The lowest eluting fractions have an octene content of about 40 CH3/ 1,000C.
