    The heat capacity of a very low-density polyethylene copolymer (VLDPE) was measured between 10 and 410 K. Using two sets of literature data for the fully crystalline and the fully amorphous states, crystallinities were calculated as a function of temperature. During the stabilisation periods in the melting process no equilibrium is reached, because of an exothermic process, which is attributed to (re)crystallization. Values for the enthalpy of melting and for the heat capacity of the liquid are given.
