Suppliers of Copper Slag

Copper slag is an iron silicate - Fe2(Si2O4) - a by-product of flash smelting in copper manufacture. Flash smelting enables the iron to be removed from the copper ore by reacting with the silicates and floating on the molten copper mass as a slag. The resulting product is extremely hard and abrasive and is widely used in shot blast cleaning of products ranging from iron and steel to concrete and stone. The chemical nature of the copper slag also makes it a potential source of iron and silica in cement manufacture.
