Description of key information

The granulometry of Oleamide was determined in accordance with European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter R.7a, Endpoint specific guidance, May 2008.

Additional information

Light microscopic examination revealed that the Oleamide contains particles < 100 μm. The shape of the product including these fines is non-fibrous. On average, 1.1 % m/m is < 100 μm.

The characteristics of the PSD of the fraction < 100 μm are:

d10: 38.7 µm

d50: 77 µm

d90: 112 µm

From the whole product 0.01% is < 10 μm and 0.003% is < 5 μm.
