Description of key information

Ferrous slags are non oxidising

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

Ferrous slags are inert inorganics with all relevant analytes in their most stable oxidation state. Ferrous slags are formed at temperatures of >1000 °C and, thus, are free of any material which could exothermically react with combustible material under standard conditions.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on observation, knowledge of the manufacturing method, and analytical information, ferrous slags are not oxidising
