What is cermet?

Cermet is an abbreviation for "CERamic" and "METal." CerMet is a composite material composed of ceramic (cer) and metallic (met) materials. The metal is used as a binder for an oxide, boride, carbide, or alumina. Generally, the metallic elements used are nickel, molybdenum, and cobalt. Depending on the physical structure of the material, cermets can also be metal matrix composites, but cermets are usually less than 20% metal by volume.

It is used in the manufacture of resistors (especially potentiometers), capacitors, and other electronic components which may experience high temperatures.

Some types of cermet are also being considered for use as spacecraft shielding as they resist the high velocity impacts of micrometeoroids and orbital debris much more effectively than more traditional spacecraft materials such as aluminum and other metals.

Hmmm.. And I thought this was just another made up SciFi/Fantasy material like Mythril.

#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 02 2005 at 3:48 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) So we got a person who is bring Gilsellers into Dynamis on Cait sith named Ryudo. They are trying to sell currency for 50k per single unit and 5mil per 100 unit. Well I guess Relic weapons will become harder to get if you plan on buying currency and items from these FOOLS.

Have had 8 chunks drop off Strange Apparatus 2x during my career (just make sure you know the password system, so you don't end up with any crystals). Who knows? If you don't get cermet chunks, maybe you will get some money items (arcane flowerpot/rune weapons). Only downside on using SA with password is getting rune arrows... not worth much.
