Blast Furnace Slag

Corrosivity: Blast furnace slag is mildly alkaline, with a pH in nonstagnant water mixtures in the range of 8 to 10. Despite the fact that blast furnace slag contains a small component of elemental sulfur (1 to 2 percent), the leachate is slightly alkaline and does not present a corrosion risk to steel (e.g., steel pilings).

Liquid slag produced in a blast furnace (BF)is at a temperature of around 1500?C and has a sensible heat of around 400Mcal/ton. BF slag is rich in CaO, SiO2, Al2O3, and MgO which are similar to the components of Portland cement. When this liquid BF slag is cooled fast enough then the solidified slag has a large percentage of glassy phase with high cementations activity and hence it can be used ...
