Flexite is a hardened steel alloy made up of extremely pure steel and advanced carbon super-molecules. In addition to using Carbon-60 or "Fullersphere" molecules for strength and stability, Felxite also contains small quantities of other metals including iridium and vanadium to prevent corrosion and surface abrasion. Flexite's crystalline structure is prealigned in the factory, leading to a super-strong metallic alloy that is extensively used in vehicle construction.[1]
