Steels that contain specific amounts of alloying elements other than carbon and common elements such as phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, copper and manganese are known as alloy steels. Alloying elements are added to change mechanical or physical properties. However, carbon content and alloying elements influence the overall characteristics of alloy steels.

The following datasheet will provide an overview of AISI 8750 alloy steel.
