The effect of CaF(2) on the viscosity of high-basicity Al(2)O(3)-CaO-MgO-SiO(2) (-CaF(2)) slags for secondary steelmaking was studied using a Brookfield digital viscometer. The addition of approximately 3 mass pct CaF(2) could decrease the liquidus temperature substantially in the case of high CaO containing slags, leading to good flowability of the slag at the temperature of the ladle treatment. The addition of CaF(2) had the strongest effect on the viscosity of liquid slag with high SiO(2) content.
