In an attempt to take advantage of industrial wastes, Iron slag was used to prepare some of glass samples in an attempt to re-use. The following chemical formula has considered in the preparation process. (25 + x) % slag + (75 - x) % (Na2B4O7.10H2O), where x has varied among different values. The rapid quenching method has used to prepare the glass samples, of thier molten components at 1200°C. When x > 45 had not be obtained any glasses, in the conditions of preparation. Both FTIR and XRD showed that each sample contains x ≤ 45 had formed perfect glass state. Density and molar volume showed that the glass structure became more open with increasing concentration of the slag.
