"Dross" in context

Dross is a non-metallic impurity present in metals after smelting, which can diminish the quality of the original material. It is typically made up of oxides, salts and other impurities found naturally in the raw material and created by the smelting process. Dross can form on the surface of molten metals, especially aluminum, where it can be caused by oxidation or contamination from the environment.

In addition to causing a decrease in the quality of the metal, dross also impairs the casting process, making it more difficult to shape the metal. This can impact both the quality and the production speed of the finished product.
