Tungsten Steel bars weighs almost twice as much as conventional steel which makes it a perfect material for manufacturing a small yet HEAVY Bucking Bar. As you know, the heavier the bar, the easier it is to shoot your rivet.
With conventional steel bucking bars, installing rivets in open areas has never been a problem, but when the rivet is in a confined space and the ability to use a heavy enough bar to properly install the rivet without work hardening is not possible, you can use our small yet heavy Tungsten Bucking Bars.

ATS6006 ATS TUNGSTEN BUCKING BAR
This is my second Tungsten Bar. It just makes the job that much easier. I have better control when bucking buy myself.
Used one one a earlier job, flattened 1/8” rivets easily and reduced impacts to my hand.
