I think the question is self explanatory.
In the Marvel Universe what are the various fictional materials(metals or otherwise)?
The only ones which I have encountered are:
- Vibranium and
Are there any besides these?

Marvel's canon Earth-616 is rife with imaginary metals and metallic alloys. The short list includes:
Primary Adamantium: most indestructible material/metal in the Marvel Universe, found uniquely within Captain America's shield (now with added Uru!).
Adamantium: incredibly hard to come by, can be used to coat normal metals to enhance their durability as well. Almost impossible to make on Earth-616, process is limited to a select few corporations. Most notably found in Ultron's nigh-indestructible carapace.
Secondary Adamantium: When you can't afford real adamantium, you make, buy or steal this. Nearly as good, far more durable than normal metallic alloys, very, very expensive.
Adamantium Beta: Wolverine's Skeleton and claws are made from this. Unique to Wolverine.
Vibranium A: A metallic substance which absorbs vibrational energy, once found exclusively in the African kingdom of Wakanda. It was of extraterrestrial origins. The Wakandan stockpile was destroyed.
Vibranium B: Also known as anti-metal, which destroys metallic bonds even in adamantium. Black Panther used to have claws made from it. This material was found exclusively in the Savage Land.
Carbonadium: Carbonadium is a resilient, unstable metal that is vastly stronger than steel, but more malleable and cheaper than adamantium, a synthetic and poor man's adamantium, very durable but also very toxic as well. Most commonly associated with Omega Red.
Adamantine: Greek god's version of Adamantium, durable, tough, golden-colored, very rare. Most notable object: Hercules' Golden Mace
Uru: Norse super-metal, Mjolnir is made of from it; tough, strong, holds enchantments well, hard to come by, even in Asgard, dwarves horde it.
Cosmically-enhanced metals: including the armor of the Celestials, Galactus and the material the Silver Surfer's board are made of super-strong, nearly indestructible materials, unable to be affected by most normal forces on Earth. This may also include unique weapons of the local god-like beings associated with Earth, such as Odin's spear, Gungnir.
Iron Man's Armor: - composed of metallic and ceramically enhanced alloys allowing for durability, strength and can be further enhanced by charging it with electrical energies.
Osmium: A real metal, it makes this list because Colossus, the Living Juggernaut's mutant power is to transform into a being composed of this dense and resilient metal.
