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
This solid Tungsten Round is 1 inch in diameter and a little under 3/8 inch thick (.370). Your 3.25 ounce shipment will contain one Tungsten Round.
A Tungsten Round can be easily used for pinewood derby car weighting if the weight of the car body, wheels, and axles is less than 1.75 ounces
. Drill a 1-1/16 inch diameter hole into the bottom of the car body, and then epoxy the Round into the hole.
Since the Tungsten Round is 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. In the photo, 3/16 inch tungsten cubes would be used.
