A pneumatic bladder is an inflatable (pneumatic) bag technology with many applications. Emergency management applications Pneumatic bladders are used to seal drains and ducts to contain chemical spills or gases. Pneumatic bladders are often used for the containment of chemical spills, oil spills or fire water on water to prevent them from entering the environment, usually in the form of booms.

Other applications Pneumatic bladders, known as dunnage bags, are used to stabilize cargo within a container. Pneumatic bladders are used in medical research. Leading edge inflatable kites use pneumatic bladders restrained by a fabric case; the bladder is selected slightly larger than the case, so that at operational inflation the bladder is not stressed while the
