The Cylons use an organic resin as a major structural component of their Basestars. The resin is applied to metal as a viscous black paste. In its cured state, the resin is compared to cartilage. The resin is also compatible with Colonial hulls, as it is used to prolong Galactica's structural integrity until her end ("No Exit", "Deadlock").
