Boreanium is a new metal designed in the year YE 31 by Origin Industries, designed from the ground up to be a heavy weight heat-resistant material, for use on combat craft and inter-atmosphere shuttles. Boreanium is a light-weight, Semi-metallic alloy, created from Titanium, Iron, Iridium, and various forms of micro-ceramics. As a part of its design, Boreanium has enhanced resistance to heat, as it is an effective insulator. Instead of bending and warping when exposed to extremely high temperatures, Boreanium begins shedding molecule thick layers of the thick outer surface to cool itself off. This sometimes leads to the side effect of Boreanium armored objects leaving misty after-images composed of shredded Boreanium. Overall, Boreanium is best described as an Moderately Expensive material created to add a greater degree of temperature resistance to combat craft, which suits the goals of Origin Industries.
