Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
It was apparent that some of the test substance was capable of becoming airborne under the conditions of the test, 4.12% being less than or equivalent to 115 µm aerodynamic equivalent diameter (AED).  Eluted material having an AED of less than 15 µm can be considered as respirable and represented 0.13% by weight. Therefore, C3RO is considered to be of very low inhalability and respirability.
