Most drain cleaners have sodium hydroxide (lye) as their foundation. Lye is a caustic base as opposed to HCL. Both of these chemicals hate foreign material - especially metals (except brass) - and eat them up rapidly. Either will burn your skin/eyes plus they get very hot and give-off toxic gases . . . even when used properly. Please be careful.
