HE 395 Tungsten Alloy

HE 395 is a high-density tungsten alloy which is suitable for a broad range of commercial engineering applications.

High Density

HE 395 tungsten alloy offers numerous beneficial performance characteristics. The alloy benefits from excellent hardness, with high ductility and ultimate tensile strength. High-temperature resistance is also superior, and the wear resistance of the material is excellent. HE 395 benefits from good corrosion resistance in both acid and alkaline atmospheres.


Manufactured with a binder of iron and nickel, the tungsten content of HE 395 is 95%. The resulting alloy is magnetic and is suitable for applications where high material density is required. Tungsten is regarded as a safer alternative to lead. Due to higher density, the product holds a better shape, even under extreme conditions.

Typical Applications

Commercial applications for this engineering material include:

  • Welding rods
  • Extrusion dies
  • Radiation shields
  • High-temperature applications
  • Rotor blades
  • Ordnance components

We stock HE 395 in round bar.
