The characteristics of bricks made from steel slag were investigated in this research. Slag addition was shown to reduce the required firing temperature. When the firing temperature was greater than 1050 �C and the slag addition less than 10%, the bricks met ROC national standard CNS 3319 third-class brick for builders. The percentage of slag increased as the quartz and kaolin decreased in the sintered samples while the magnesium aluminum silicate and calcium silicate increased. There were no new crystal phases observed in these samples.
