Copper slag is a by-product produced during smelting of copper, which is then processed into abrasive products. Typically
it is composed of Ferro silicate material and oxides formed when the molten slag is quenched in cold water. This cooling
process fractures the slag into coarse, angular particles making it an ideal choice in many applications.
It is a low cost expendable abrasive suited for open blast cleaning and due to its low silica content it does not pose the
health hazards created by silica sand. Its sharp, hard particles can provide a fast cleaning action and an excellent surface
Applications of Copper Slag include abrasive blasting, building materials, land filling, road construction, abrasive tools,
cutting tools, tiles and glass and roofing granules.
