Conclusions:
The mean particle size is 86 µm with 10% of the particles < 25 µm and 90% of the particles > 143 µm.

Description of key information

The mean particle size of the test substance was determined to be 86 µm using a Horiba LA920 light scattering particle size analyzer and confirmed by optical microscopy.

Additional information

The mean particle size of the test substance is 86 µm with 10% of the particles < 25 µm and 90% of the particles > 143 µm.
