What is Tungsten Putty?
Tungsten Putty is a non-hardening, moldable material made from tungsten powder and a polymer binder. Under normal conditions, it will not harden. The minimum density is 10 g/cm3.
Tungsten putty is similar to lead in density. Generally, other tungsten products are used for the majority of the car’s weight, and tungsten putty is used for fine-tuning.
How to Use this Product
Tungsten Putty can be easily used for fine-tuning the weight of pinewood derby cars. Simply pinch off a piece of the putty, knead it until it is pliable, and press the putty into a cavity or hole in the car. If the car is too heavy, use a small screwdriver to remove some of the tungsten putty.
Although tungsten putty is made from non-toxic ingredients, it is NOT a toy for children to play with. Always wash your hands after use, and keep it away from food and your mouth.
