Description of key information

Ferrous slags do not have any explosive properties

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Ferrous slags are inert inorganics with all relevant analytes in their most stable oxidation state. Ferrous slags do not contain any chemical group associated with explosive properties. As ferrous slags are formed at temperatures of >1000 °C they cannot undergo ignition or rapid decomposition.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Since ferrous slags are inert inorganics with all relevant analytes in their most stable oxidation state, ferrous slags are non explosive
