German term or phrase: polygongebrochen
"Besonderes Kennzeichen ist die polygon-gebrochene Granulatstruktur in der Korngröße 63 – 250 μm."

"Materialeigenschaften

- polygongebrochenes Granulat ..."

From a text about granules designed for use in periodontology. I'm a bit baffled by "polygongebrochen". Broken into polygons? Any other ideas? TIA for your help.

granulate broken into polygon shaped structure
Explanation:
"granulate broken into polygon shaped structure"

Or simply "polygon shaped granulate"

That´s how I understand this, that the granulate has a polygon shaped structure. I hope it helps a bit.

Thanks for that Hans. From what you say, it looks like I can just say "polygon-shaped granules" (I prefer "granules" for Granulat), so that's what I'll go with. Thanks again - appreciate your help.
