We start with an i.i.d. sequence and consider the product of two polynomial-forms moving averages based on that sequence. The coefficients of the polynomial forms are asymptotically slowly decaying homogeneous functions so that these processes have long memory. The product of these two polynomial forms is a stationary nonlinear process. Our goal is to obtain limit theorems for the normalized sums of this product process in three cases: exclusion of the diagonal terms of the polynomial form,

In any one of these cases, if the product has long memory, then the limits are given by Wiener chaos. But the limits in each of the cases are quite different. If the diagonals are excluded, then the limit is expressed as in the product formula of two Wiener-It\^{o} integrals. When the diagonals are included, the limit stochastic integrals are typically due to a single factor of the product, namely the one with the strongest memory. In the mixed case, the limit stochastic integral is due to the polynomial form without the diagonals irrespective of the strength of the memory.
