Coated Steel Dunnage

Cross-linked Foam bonded to steel

Invented by Dunnage Engineering back in 1961, Vinyl Coated Steel is used world-wide as a dunnage material for shipping containers. The vinyl coating is a tough cushioning material that is permanently bonded to rust-inhibiting galvanized steel and can be formed exactly to the contours of the part being held. The material holds its shape through years of repeated use to protect parts from damage during storage and shipment.

Vinyl Coated Steel can be formed into almost any shape without ever delaminating. Its design flexibility allows for a wide range of intricate dunnage shapes including deep draw, complex curves, angled pockets, and tight spacing. Dunnage Engineering manufactures Vinyl Coated Steel into fully fabricated dunnage components that are ready to be inserted into a shipping container.

Prototype samples can be developed very quickly and inexpensively. They are identical to actual production parts and therefore can be fully tested before manufacturing.
