What is Tungsten?

Tungsten is a metal with one of the highest densities. Tungsten is 1.7 times more dense than lead, 2.4 times denser than steel, and 2.7 times denser than zinc.


How to Use this Product

Incremental Tungsten Cylinders can be easily used for pinewood derby car weighting by drilling one or more 25/64 inch or larger diameter holes into the block and then inserting the desired number of cylinders and gluing it in place with a hot glue gun or epoxy. The hole can then be plugged or left open for adjustment at the weigh-in. Since Tungsten Cylinders are very hard, do not plan to drill out any extra weight. Instead, use an alternate method to make fine adjustments such as adding/removing tungsten putty, beads, etc.
