The coefficient in front of tungsten compensates for the fact that the atomic weight of tungsten is about twice that of molybdenum. Molybdenum has been used from the very beginning in DSS. It was used in 453S launched by Avesta Jernverk in 1930 and has been used in virtually all DSS ever since. However, it was not until the 1980’s when Sumitomo launched DP3 and Weir launched Zeron 100 that tungsten was used more systematically as an alloying element.
