WHAT IS DUNNAGE?

PSIPL inflatable Dunnage Bags are the logical answer to your shipping damage expense. They have an outstanding load stabilizing capacity, withstanding tons of pressure and resistance to load shifting. The bags are constructed of multiple layers of high strength extensible Kraft paper and the outer ply of 6 and 8 ply is coated with polyethylene to resist moisture (coating is optional on two/four ply bag). The inner liner is constructed of co-extruded polyethylene film for added protection against loss of air pressure.

WHY DUNNAGE???

PSIPL developed the dunnage bags to fill the following needs:

v Method of dunnaging or bracing a shipment of goods.

v A replacement for more expensive rubber air bags.

v Versatility and ease of installation.

v To fill voids, brace loads, absorb vibrations, better protection of lading than any other form of dunnage.

v Solves shipping damage problems.

Damage to containerized cargo occurs when there is movement of cargo inside the container. "To prevent this damage an un-inflated dunnage bag is placed in voids between your cargo. The bag is inflated with compressed air and exerts a force on the surface of the cargo, preventing any movement,”. This is called DUNNAGE.

Because the bag exerts a force on your cargo it is working for you all the way by being able to absorb sharp impacts generated through the handling of the container. Conventional dunnage is a static securer. It might fill the void but it is not working on your cargo.”

Conventional dunnage such as wooden struts can in fact damage your product through puncturing or scuffing cargo should sharp impact forces occur. Hence DUNNAGE BAGS provide the most efficient load securing systems to prevent cargo damage….and thereby increase profits.

HOW TO DUNNAGE?

A. Yes, however, our concern in selling a reusable bag is as follows:

2. The bags have a significant up-charge. Most customers do not have enough control to get the bags back, thus they pay for a bag to reuse that they do not get to reuse.

3. Many times bags are punctured to release the air and thrown away. However, we have added an additional label to try to eliminate this problem.
