    What do you mean by "strength"? Tensile strength? Compressive strength? Shear modulus strength? Shape retention? Something else?

    @Valorum I think the OP is underthinking it: "strength" for metals is not one thing.

Beskar was the toughest metal known to science. Even lightsabers had trouble with it. There had been a time when every army in the galaxy wanted a supply.
