Answer:

Do you mean the #"thermite reaction"#? The substrate is not #"ferrous oxide"#.

Explanation:

#"Ferric oxide"# reacts with #"aluminum"# to give molten iron and #"aluminum oxide"#:

#Fe_2O_3(s) + 2 Al(s)rarr 2 Fe(l) + Al_2O_3(s)+Delta#

This reaction is still used on railways to join (i.e. weld) lengths of rail track together.

Anyway over to you for clarification.
