Density measurements of CaO-MnO-SiO2 slags were carried out using the Archimedean method. The density decreased with increasing temperature, and the negative temperature coefficient (-dρ/dT) was in the range of 1.46-3.10 × 10-1 kg/m3 K. At a fixed CaO content (25 wt%) and at a fixed SiO2 content (30 wt%), the density of CaO-MnO-SiO2 slag increased with increasing MnO content. The molar volumes of CaO, MnO and SiO2 at 1 773 K were estimated 21.0, 17.2, and 28.0 × 10-6 m3/mol, respectively. The molar excess volume was expressed by VEx =ωXSiO2(1-X SiO2), where ω = -8.97 × 10-6 m 3/mol at 1 773 K. The thermal expansion coefficient decreased with increasing XSiO2 because of the enhanced silicate network structure.
