I'm uncertain, but I think plasma is a "burn-in" damage.

It sortof gets into the target material and burns it up from the inside.

Kindof like superheated water being absorbed by a sponge, if that makes any sense.

Which makes me wonder how the Borg could adapt to that.

The metal plates and the organic tissues of their bodies are essentially being roasted from the inside out!

And it was shown in First Contact that warp coolant will pretty much vaporize their organic components, leaving just a pile of metal scrap.
Which I assume is a similar principle to the flamethrower.

Excuse me while I go invent a warp coolant thrower......
