The purest form of iron is ______

Wrought iron is the purest form of iron.

What is wrought iron?

Wrought iron is composed primarily of iron with 1 to 2% of added slag, the by-product of iron ore smelting, generally a mix of silicon, sulphur, phosphorous, and aluminium oxides. It is a soft, ductile, fibrous variety produced from a semi fused mass of relatively pure iron globules. The iron is removed from heat during manufacture and worked with a hammer while still hot to get it into its intended final form.

The following are the list of applications of wrought iron:

  • Decorative items such as railings, outdoor stairs, fences and gates
  • Nuts and bolts
  • Handrails.
