Description of key information

Ferrous slags do not hydrolyse in water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Ferrous slags are inorganic UVCB similar to natural rock, with a very low solubility, and very high stability in water rendering slags suited for hydraulic engineering e.g. as a rock material in waterway construction and for coastal protection. No degradation was observed even after more than 10 years of use in waterway construction.
