Description of key information

Ferrous slags are not flammable and have no flash point

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Since ferrous slags are inert inorganics with all relevant analytes in their most stable oxidation state, further oxidation will not occur spontaneously. Ferrous slags are formed at temperatures of >1000 °C and even if oxidizable material is present (graphite, traces of metal), it is not possible to generate a flammable gas phase from slag.
