Does plate heirloom change at 40?

General Discussion
Post Limit:
Just curious, does the actual armor value "change" from mail to plate and give considerable armor value?
It changes from mail to plate once you can wear plate.

The same applies to mail gear when the wearer starts in leather.
Yeah I understand that part, but does the armor increase significantly upon hitting 40?
Yes, I'm curious about something, If you transmog a plate heirloom into something mail pre-40, when it stay transmogged upon hitting 40?
There are two equivs for the one piece... once you hit the required level it becomes the new armor type. This includes the perks the armor type gives. As for transmogs, I dont think it does remain a leather piece if it improves to mail. It might but restrict you re-mogging it once it transitions from leather to mail or mail to plate.

as I recall, you can't transmog mail on to plate heirlooms.
