Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

MV (Mean diameter in microns of the “volume distribution”): 7.126 µm

MN (Mean diameter, in microns, of the “number distribution"): 1.324 µm

MA (Mean diameter, in microns, of the “area distribution”): 4.277 µm

CS - Calculated surface: 1.403 m²/cc

SD – Standard deviation: 3.821

The median particle size (D50) was determined to be 7.006 µm, whereas the D10 and D90 were determined to be 1.677 and 11.84 µm, respectively. These values can be considered representative for the granular forms.

Description of key information

From the key study in which the particle size distribution of the test item (Klimisch 2, Luxfer MEL Technologies, 2016) was evaluated using Microtrac-X100, the D10, D50 and D90 values were determined to be 1.677 µm, 7.006 µm and 11.84 µm, respectively.
