Kleen blast

I pick up a bag of Kleen blast was wondering if it's safe for my tank? It's for sand blasting similar to black beauty.

Looking at the MSDS for Kleen blast I don't see any problem except, possibly, that it is slightly soluble in water. You could check that by putting a bit in some water and measuring the KH and GH after a week or two.

Check that chemical name is copper slag. So does it have copper in it or not I'm confused.

http://www.kleenblast.com/pdf/MSDS%2...%20REPLACE.pdf says it has essentially zero copper in it. It seems that the copper is removed by the smelting process, which is the point of smelting. I wouldn't hesitate to use it, but I might do the water soak test to see if it changes in GH or KH after a week.
