Shock resisting steel
Shock resisting steels are a class of tool steels designed to resist breakage by shock. Under the AISI classification system there are seven types, labeled S1 to S7.
Shock resisting steels are designed to have high impact resistance (toughness), along with other properties such as strength, hardness. Silicon is a common addition to this class of steels, as it provides tempering resistance, and increases toughness.
Applications for shock resisting steels includes springs, as well as chisels, dies for forging, and punches. S2 steel is also used to make Ball bearings for the mining industry. They are also used for screwdrivers and driver bits.

SVCM steel is kind of shock resisting steel. SVCM steel is an alloy of carbon, silicon, chromium, magnesium, nickel, molybdenum and lead. SVCM+ in addition is quenched and tempered achieving a high hardness (HRC 59). SCVM+ has better torsional properties than chromium-vanadium steel (Cr-V).
