The median particle size D50 (50 % of particle volume with lower particle diameter) from the two series are:

1st test series: D50 = 213.53 µm

2nd test series: D50 = 217.19 µm

The average of the median particle size D50 was 215.4 µm.

The particle size D10 (10 % of particle volume with lower particle diameter) from the two series are:

1st test series: D10 = 28.84 µm

2nd test series: D10 = 28.79 µm

The average of the particle size D10 was 28.8 µm.

The particle size D90 (90 % of particle volume with lower particle diameter) from the two test series are:

1st test series: D90 = 845.79 µm

2nd test series: D90 = 879.00 µm

The average of the particle size D90 was 862.4 µm.

Conclusions:
The test item has a median particle size D50 = 215.4 µm.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted according to OECD TG 110, OPPTS 830.7520 and ISO 13320 to determine the particle size distribution of the test item. The particle size distribution was determined using laser diffraction. Two test series were performed with the test item. The test item has a median particle size D50 = 215.4 µm, which was determined by laser diffraction measurement.
