Chimerium is a rare mineral with natural sensor blocking and phaser reflecting properties. Additionally, it is impossible to maintain a transporter lock on chimerium, but it can be transported via a wide-area beaming, if the transport officer is not worried about introducing quantum errors into organic matter caught in the beam. Chimerium is only found on the Nalori planet Sarindar.

Instacrete is a material invented by scientists for use in combat zones. Instacrete is easy to shape and build with, incredibly strong, and dries quickly, allowing strong, permanent buildings to be hastily erected when they are needed. It is primarily used for creating bunkers and defensive walls. It can be inferred that the instacrete will take quite a lot of punishment even while in a semisolid state. It is believed that instacrete can withstand quite a bit of small arm's plasma fire before being completely burned away. Its estimated dry time to full hardness and strength is several hours depending on temperature and humidity.


Carbon nanotubes
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are allotropes of carbon with a nanostructure that can have a length-to-diameter ratio of up to 28,000,000:1, which is significantly larger than any other material. These cylindrical carbon molecules have novel properties that make them potentially useful in many applications in nanotechnology, electronics, optics and other fields of materials science, as well as potential uses in architectural fields. They exhibit extraordinary strength and unique electrical properties, and are efficient conductors of heat.

The strength of the carbon-carbon bonds gives carbon nanotubes amazing mechanical properties. The best nanotubes can be as high as 1000 GPa which is approximately 5x higher than steel. The tensile strength, or breaking strain of nanotubes can be up to 63 GPa, around 50x higher than steel. These properties, coupled with the lightness of carbon nanotubes, gives them great potential in applications such as aerospace. It has even been suggested that nanotubes could be used in the “space elevator”, an Earth-to-space cable first proposed by Arthur C. Clarke. The electronic properties of carbon nanotubes are also extraordinary. Especially notable is the fact that nanotubes can be metallic or semiconducting depending on their structure. Thus, some nanotubes have conductivities higher than that of copper, while others behave more like silicon.


Cortosis
Cortosis ore was a very rare, brittle, fibrous material whose conductive properties caused energy blades to temporarily short out upon contact, although the wielder could solve this problem by turning the blade back on after a couple of seconds. This effect made cortosis a useful material for anti-energy blade melee weapons, though with repeated strikes, a beam blade could still cut through it. Cortosis, due to its heat and energy resistant properties was also highly resistant to blaster fire.


Transparent aluminum is a transparent material that was much stronger and lighter than plexiglass. While plexiglass sheets for a 60x10 tank with 18,000 cubic feet of water would need to be six inches thick, a transparent aluminum sheet would only need to be one inch thick.


Tetraburnium
Tetraburnium a metallic alloy capable of withstanding extreme amounts of heat and pressure.

Gundanium
What makes Gundanium so incredible is its properties: it is practically immutable, highly heat-resistant, and electrically neutral. These properties combine to produce a material that is extremely hard to damage. Additionally, heat and beam weapons produced using Gundanium are much stronger than similar weapons made using traditional titanium, thanks to its extremely high melting point allowing it to produce hotter and therefore stronger beam energy. The name is actually a misnomer, since Gundanium is not technically an alloy; it contains non-ferrous metals and non-metallic elements. Gundanium is very rare and hard to make, since it requires the use of super-heated plasma and nanomachines, and very few people know exactly how to make and refine it. Further, it is said that Gundanium can only be produced at Lagrange points under zero-gravity conditions.


Trinium Though weak and brittle in its raw form, when refined it is 100 times lighter and stronger than steel.


Duranium
Duranium was a naturally occuring, extremely strong metallic, substance. Due to its abundance in numerous planetary cores, duranium was used for hull construction for starships and facilities by numerous races across the Milky Way galaxy.


Durasteel
Durasteel was an incredibly strong and versatile metal alloy, created from carvanium, lommite, carbon, meleenium, neutronium, and zersium. It was capable of withstanding blistering heat, frigid cold, and monumental physical stress, even when very thin. Despite that, however, it could still oxidize.


Vibranium
Vibranium is a rare, naturally occurring metallic substance. Vibranium, though as yet unknown means, absorbs vibratory energy in its vicinity, such as sound waves, with in itself. The apparent observable vibratory rate of the molecules of the Vibranium itself does not increase when the Vibranium absorbs mechanical energy. The outside vibratory energy is stored within the bonds between the molecules making up the Vibranium. As a result, a chunk of Vibranium, which has absorbed a considerable amount of vibratory energy, would be exceedingly hard to demolish. If enough force were applied to this chunk to smash it the Vibranium would explode, releasing much of the absorbed energy. There are limits to the capacity of Vibranium to absorb vibratory energy, although the exact extent of these limits has not yet been determined.
