Most of the steel found today is "alloy steel". An alloy is an element that is mixed into the metal during processing. Adding an alloy produces a metal with different physical characteristics. Common alloying elements are Nickel and Chromium and can be added in the furnaces of either the basic oxygen or the electric arc processes.
