Substance formed during processing of liquid steel or during production of iron castings. Consists primarily of fused silicates and trace elements as oxides as well as trace of alloying elements.
For determination of the genetic
toxicity potential of slags, steelmaking, converter (BOS) and natural
stone from a quarry in Serra, Brasilia, tests according to OECD
Guideline 474 (Mammalian Erythrocyte Micronucleus Test) were performed.
As the substances are inorganic solids, leachates were prepared with a
L/S (liquid/solid) of 1:4 (250 g/L).
Slags, steelmaking, converter (BOS) and
natural stone from a quarry in Serra, Brasilia, are not mutagenetic or
cytotoxic when tested according to OECD Guideline 474. They do
not need to be classified as mutagenic. No signal word and no hazard
statement is required.
