Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the test, the D50 value of the test material was determined to be 1.74 µm.
Executive summary:

The particle size distribution of the test material was investigated broadly in accordance with the standardised guideline ISO 13320:2009 using Laser diffraction. The dispersion liquid was water containing a 5 % solution of sodium hexametaphosphate in the ratio 20:1.

Under the conditions of the test, the D50 value of the test material was determined to be 1.74 µm.
