  Vessel Operations

  Depending on the exact vessel application, one of our categories above will be applicable for use in   your vessel operations. Please contact us to discuss in more detail.

 How to select the right size? 

Cargo Tuff produces and stocks a variety of sizes of dunnage bags in all levels. Please contact us for more information on the sizes we offer. 

Dunnage airbags perform best when the pressure force of the bag exerted onto the load is equal to, or greater than the weight of the product. In order accomplish this, the bag needs to have as much surface contact with the product as possible. 

The red areas in the images to the right show the part of the bag that is not touching the cargo. These red areas need to be minimized by either reducing the void size, or increasing the bag size. An optimal bag size will have maximum surface coverage on the product it is bracing without protruding above the product. 

 QUALITY CONTROL 

No other manufacturer focuses as much on quality as we do. This starts from the moment we receive the resin and additives that go into our extruders and continues all the way down the line until the finished bag is packed into a box and loaded onto a truck or container. 

 

We pressure test 10% of our lightweight production and 100% of our heavy weight production. 

 PRODUCT SPECS 

To be completely transparent we publicize our product specs so that our customers and our competitors can verify that our products found in the field, always meet or exceed our specs as per the specification details in the table to the right.
