Microlite construction involves the construction of an object on the molecular level, thus making them incredibly durable, as there are no gaps or welds. Microllite construction uses nanites to build the object by manipulating molecular bonds, thus increasing the overall strength of the object. It can also be used to create stronger alloys, as the metals are bonded at the molecular level. This is used in construction to increase the strength and durability of Xentronium armors and hulls by over 75%. In addition. Microlite construction is fast. Thus, a supply of nanites can be kept aboard the ship, or in specialized armor, to repair damage such as hull breaches, quickly, in a matter of minutes or seconds, depending upon the damage done. Thus, creating a regnerative aspect to their armor, that standard Xentronium armor lacks.
