Until quite recently, spider silk had the highest tensile strength

of any substance known to man, and the name Silksteel pays homage
to the arachnid for good reason.

The growing field of Industrial Automation causes increased demand for new kinds of material that can withstand the incredible stresses of the robotic factories. Discoveries in Advanced Subatomic Theory provide engineers with these materials, dubbed Silksteel Alloys for their extraordinary tensile strength and flexibility.
