Carbon Black CAS # 1333-86-4 (< 10 %) listed on Safety Data Sheet

"Due to its particle structure Carbon Black is affected by the current nanotechnology/nanomaterial discussions between many stakeholders, including researchers, regulators, Non-Governmental Organizations and industry." - International Carbon Black Association

"...carbon black is produced from small spherical particles (so-called primary particles or nodules) with sizes in the range of 15–300 nm. These particles melt into particle aggregates that are 85–500 nm in aerodynamic diameter..." - DaNa 2.0 Information about nanomaterials and their safety assessment
