Slag – a tool for steel production

Slag is the tool of steel production. The lighter slag floats on the melt and can absorb and bind unwanted elements from the steel. By that, you can increase the so-called degree of purity of the steel. After the work being done the slag has different colorings (depending on the elements absorbed) and is nothing more than artificially produced rock.
