Thermium is a manufactured material with excellent thermal conductivity.
Thermium increases the overheat temperature of buildings it's used to construct by 900 °C. It can be used to construct buildings in extremely hot environments.
- Thermium can be converted into Niobium at 1:1 rate in the Metal Refinery. This is effectively converting 95 kg of Tungsten into Niobium, thus, only one or two trips to a Niobium-containing asteroid may be required to "prime" the further conversion.
- Thermium's high overheat cap is indispensable for lategame projects, such as running Super Coolant through Thermo Aquatuner or in the construction of a sour gas boiler.
- In Spaced Out, it may be useful to put thermium into a rock crusher to make sand. This allows you to convert tungsten, from the tungsten volcano, into sand.
