It has the highest tensile strength and the lowest thermal expansion of all metals. It has the second highest melting point of all elements after carbon. Its density is almost twice that of lead and comparable to that of gold. It is an excellent conductor of electricity.

Tungsten is a relatively inactive metal with excellent corrosion resistance.
