The introduction of Metallocene chemistry in the polyolefins industry has opened new possibilities in polymer design through multiple reactor, dual catalyst and blending technologies. Very often this approach results in complex composition and molecular weight structures with resin performances very sensitive to slight composition differences and thus, requiring full characterization and control of the polymers produced.

The characterization of complex polyolefins (Polyethylene and Polypropylene copolymers) by CRYSTAF with dual wavelength Infrared detector (IR) and Laser Light Scattering (LS) will be shown.
