Transparisteel or transparasteel was a hard and completely transparent metal alloy. This made it a commonly used material for starshipviewports and the windows of strongholds and other buildings where security was a must. Transparisteel could be made phototropic, to become more opaque near bright explosions or while traveling through hyperspace. A major component in the make-up of transparisteel was lommite.
Transparisteel was much weaker than its opaque counterpart durasteel. It offered a less clear view than clari-crystalline or glass, but was more resilient.
