Magam Safety is introducing a lightweight self-sealing flexible fuel tank. The tanks are capable of withstanding up to 12.7 mm gunshots, and are suited for various applications including helicopters, airplanes, drones, armored vehicles and main battle tanks. The tank system will be presented for the first time at Eurosatory 2016.
The self-sealing tanks, which are used for the storage and transport of fuel, are able to seal themselves in the event of damage from shots from weapons ranging from light arms to heavy machine guns. 75% lighter than metal tanks, they withstand even the harshest environments and weather conditions, including very high and very low temperatures, shocks, pressure, and water. The company manufactures a variety of tanks which differ in their coating layers.
