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. Because of these properties, durasteel was used for almost everything, from smelting pots for other less hearty metals, to spacecraft hulls. Despite that, however, it could still corrode in the same manner as lesser steel alloys, and likewise requires maintenance. Durasteel containers were commonly seen throughout the galaxy.
Durasteel was produced in various grades of heat treatment and alloy composition for different construction purposes. Some of these were:
