The problem here is that the original poster has chosen to drop the material PREFIX that is commonly used to designate materials.

Instead of using the standard SAE 8620 or DIN or ASTM or ASME prefix designation, much of the world chooses to drop the prefix....probably thinking that this saves time.

It does not....

This leads to much confusion.

"8620" can exist in many grades and product forms .... "Alloy 8620" has no meaning.

Be professional...Know what you are doing and pick one .....

It is 16MnCr5 alloy steel. It is used for case hardened gears and pinions. Also used for alloy steel link chains. May I know for what application you would like to use this steel?

AISI/SAE 8620 is often preferred for that application. Cross-references to equivalent grades/identifiers can found online. This, for instance.
