Steel cable, greased to prevent corrosion. Steel is an alloy mainly of iron and carbon. Other metals are often also added to the alloy and affect the material properties of the alloy. The exact composition of the added metals depends upon the type of steel required. Cables are often made of woven fibers because this is stronger than having a single, solid cable of the same dimensions.
