Can Neutronium Be Manufactured?

Neutronium may be ultra-dense but that does not mean the same thing as ultra-stong in the industrial sense. Neutronium is a highly unstable material which would undergo rapid dispersion and radioactive decay were it not for the tremendous gravitational forces that contain it and sustain its existance. Neutronium, I'm almost a hundred percent sure, may only exist in the body of a netron star. Only there are the conditions met that are required for such a material to remain stable. So a wire composed of neutronium is logicly implausible as the arangement of matter in a wire does not allow for the emergence of such gravitational "glue" so to speak. And the strenght of ductile materials relies soley on electromagnetic forces between the constituant atoms and not gravity. (Actualy the strenght of any material relies on electromagnetic forces for that matter). And this so-called "material strength" would have to be infinite for anything to withstand the unimaginably extreme tug of gravity at the event horizon of a blackhole. Since infinite strength is also logicly implausible it folows that no material could be lowered into and retrieved from the depths of a blackhole. Such an act would violate relativity, and many a paradox would emerge as a consequence.
