Vanadium Steel
An alloy often used in the construction of starships. Vanadium Steel is not as strong as Titanium-A alloy and so it is not used as armor plating, but rather in the making of essential and unarmored components. It is often used as the basic plating for a ship, welded on over the TR Steel superstructure of the ship. One of the things on ships made of Vanadium Steel are the engine shields and baffles.


Titanium
Sometimes called the “space age metal”, it has a low density and is a strong, lustrous, corrosion-resistant transition metal with a silver color. Titanium can be alloyed with iron, aluminium, vanadium, molybdenum, among other elements, to produce strong lightweight alloys for aerospace, military, industrial process, automotive, agri-food, medical prostheses, orthopedic implants, dental and endodontic instruments and files, dental implants, sporting goods, jewelry, mobile devices, and other applications.

The two most useful properties of the metal form are corrosion resistance, and the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal. In its unalloyed condition, titanium is as strong as some steels, but 45% lighter. Titanium's properties are chemically and physically similar to zirconium.

A metallic element, titanium is recognized for its high strength-to-weight ratio. It is a strong metal with low density that is quite ductile (especially in an oxygen-free environment), lustrous, and metallic-white in color. The relatively high melting point (over 1,649 °C or 3,000 °F) makes it useful as a refractory metal.

Commercial (99.2% pure) grades of titanium have ultimate tensile strength of about 63,000 psi (434 MPa), equal to that of some steel alloys, but are 45% lighter. Titanium is 60% denser than aluminium, but more than twice as strong as the most commonly used aluminium alloy. Certain titanium alloys achieve tensile strengths of over 200,000 psi (1380 MPa). However, titanium loses strength when heated above 430 °C (800 °F).

It is fairly hard although not as hard as some grades of heat-treated steel, non-magnetic and a poor conductor of heat and electricity. Machining requires precautions, as the material will soften and gall if sharp tools and proper cooling methods are not used. Like those made from steel, titanium structures have a fatigue limit which guarantees longevity in some applications.


Titanium-A
Titanium-A Armor is a common and typical battle plating used on some ships. It is composed of a high-grade Titanium-50 alloy that is usually brownish in color. Titanium-A has numerous uses due largely to Titanium being lightweight and extremely strong, with a high tolerance to heat.


Adamantium
Adamantium is a virtually indestructible man-made steel alloy which does not occur in nature and whose exact chemical composition is a classified secret. Adamantium is a series of closely related compounds of iron created through a secret process. Adamantium is created through the mixing of certain chemical resins whose composition is a secret. For eight minutes after the resins are mixed, the Adamantium can be molded into a particular shape as long as it is kept at a temperature of 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit. After this brief period the process of creating Adamantium is completed. The extremely stable molecular structure of the Adamantium prevents it from being molded further, even if the temperature remains high enough to keep it in liquefied form. Only a device celled a Molecular Rearranger can alter the form of hardened Adamantium. Adamantium is extraordinarily expensive to produce.


Neutronium
A rare super-dense alloy made up of non-toxic, trans-uranic elements on the periodic table that have far more neutrons than protons or electrons which is difficult to produce. Found naturally in the cores of neutron stars. It was impossible to scan inside neutronium.
