Flexible steel and polymer armor useful for small ships.
  — In-game description. 

UseEdit

Plasteel is a low-level armour which can be researched by the player. As this armour can be researched immediately (via the Ship Lab), it is less mass-efficient than all other armour variants. It does, however, feature some of the lightest available armours in the game (in terms of mass), which makes them ideal for mounting onto smaller vessels. It is also significantly cheaper to install and repair Plasteel armour than all other armour variants.

All armours are available in five variants (versions I to V), each one providing significantly greater amounts of armour, at an increased mass.

Note that this is not the same armour used on base modules, and must be researched separately.
