Substance Information

Slags, ferrous metal, blast furnace

The fused substance formed by the action of a flux upon the gangue of the iron-bearing materials charged to a blast furnace and upon the oxidized impurities in the iron produced. Depending upon the particular blast furnace operation, the slag is composed primarily of sulfur and oxides of aluminum, calcium, magnesium, and silicon.
