Vanadium Steel

Vanadium alloyed with steel in amounts ranging from .1% to .5%, increases the toughness and reliability of the metal. Up to 1% of vanadium may be alloyed with steel to increase its toughness.
In conjunction with chromium - as "Chrome-Vanadium steel" - it provides steels which, in view of their great toughness, are used for springs, tools, forgings and other specialized types of engineering construction work.
A typical chrome-vanadium steel contains 1% of chromium, .25% vanadium and .3% of carbon.
