Slag Abrasive

Slag Abrasive

Blast furnace slag abrasive may be gray, as in this case, or colorless, brown, green, blue. or orange. The color is normally from the iron content in the glass. There may be magnetite inclusions but that is an undesirable impurity and tends to be very rare in slag used as an abrasive.
