Results and discussion

Particle size distribution at different passages
Size:
<= 0.149 mm
Remarks on result:
other: Only a No. 100 US standard sieve was used Therefore the particles should be <0.149 mm.
Remarks:
Distribution was not determined

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The particles of the test item were <0.149 mm.
Executive summary:

In this Technical Manual, it is reported that 100% of the test item should pass through a No. 100 US standard sieve. Therefore the particles should be <0.149 mm.
