Title
(EN) Process for transitioning between incompatible polymerization catalysts
Abstract
(EN)

This invention relates to a process for transitioning between polymerization catalyst systems which are incompatible with each other. Particularly, the invention relates to a process for transitioning from an olefin polymerization reaction utilizing a traditional Ziegler-Natta catalyst system to a metallocene-olefin polymerization reaction.
