Developments in catalyst and process technology have resulted in a new highly differentiated product family based on ethylene-α-olefin copolymers. This paper reports on the key attributes of these materials. These polymers show superior Long Term Hydrostatic Strength at higher temperatures, without the need for crosslinking. This results in significant processing advantages. Such materials can be used in all classes of hot water pipe and technical pipe applications.
