Description

Slag is a by-product of iron and steel making. In nature, the ores of metals are found in impure states, often oxidized and mixed in with silicates or other metals. During iron and steel making, when the ore is exposed to high temperatures, these impurities are separated from the molten metal and removed as slag. We use slag because it is easier to work with and it is readily available in Southeastern Michigan due to the steel industry.
