This paper summarizes the results of studies on the polymerization of ethylene with 1-butene and long chain alpha -olefins with Ziegler-Natta catalysts in a slurry polymerization. 1-decene, 1-dodecene and 1-hexadecene were used as long chain alpha -olefins. The effect of 1-butene addition was investigated. Polymer compositions and basic physical properties were investigated. Polymer composition was measured by carbon-13-NMR spectroscopy and pyrolysis hydrogenation gas chromatography. Basic mechanical properties of the polymers were measured from plate and film samples. The polymerization was characterized by determining the reactivity ratios of the terpolymerization equation. The binary reactivity ratios for ethylene - long-chain alpha -olefin pairs were also determined. The calculated compositions were compared with the analyzed compositions.
