Several approaches had been performed to group similar properties of nanomaterials for the purpose of risk assessment. In addition to material and release properties, exposure during selected machining processes at workplaces was investigated. During exposure, transport and transformation processes between source and recipient also affect the materials. Ways of structuring the determination of risk are proposed for a risk assessment in activities involving nanomaterials in the workplace. The exposure during sanding of nanocomposites was found to depend on the matrix material rather than on the nano-additive.
