French polymerized auto parts maker Pronal has developed a flexible fuel tank based on a crack-resistant elastomer-coated fabric frame. The tanks, which Pronal said are light and deformable upon impact, are made using high-temperature vacuum vulcanization and filled with explosion- and fire-proof foam to trap internal gases.
