Generally low to medium carbon steels with high tensile strength and hardness (500-1300 MPa). Usually it's hot rolled or cast depending on dimensions and load.

Depending on steel and use heat treatment is prescribed, sometimes just hardening (not all steels), sometimes chrome plating, sometimes boron or nickle plating...
