Alloy Steel is steel that is alloyed with a variety of elements in total amounts between 1.0% and 5% by weight to improve its mechanical properties. The following is a range of improved properties in alloy steels (as compared to carbon steels): strength, hardness, toughness, wear resistance, corrosion resistance harden ability, etc. To achieve some of these improved properties the products may require heat treatment. Some of these find uses in exotic and highly-demanding applications, such as in the turbine blades of jet engines, in spacecraft, and in nuclear reactors. Because of the ferromagnetic properties of iron, some steel alloys find important applications where their responses to magnetism are very important, including in electric motors and in transformers.
