Physical & Chemical properties

Particle size distribution (Granulometry)

Administrative data

Endpoint:
particle size distribution (granulometry)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with national standard methods with acceptable restrictions
Remarks:
According to appendix R7-1 of ECHA Guidance on Information Requirements and Chemical Safety Assessment multiple techniques should be applied to investigate phys. chem. properties of particulates, although different measurement methods may not provide comparable results. Laser diffraction is the well experienced standard procedure for pigments to determine particle size distribution of the pigment as it is manufactured and delivered.

For further percentiles see attached report.

Given standard deviation is based on the general experience with the method and pigments. The estimated values are typical standard deviations for pigments:

D10: 4 % of D10 (minimum value 0.05 µm)

D50: 13 % of D50 (minimum value 0.1 µm)

D90: 29 % of D90 - D50
