FAQs About Balloons - Perth Balloons

FAQs About Balloons How Long does a Balloon float for? The average float time of Latex Balloons filled with Helium is approximately 12 hours, however conservatively the latex balloons will float for 5-7 hours. Float time can vary significantly based on the level of inflation (under inflation, regular inflation or over inflation), size of balloon (9", 11" 12") and external factors such as temperature and humidity. (Balloons float longer in colder temperatures and in higher humidity.) Perth Balloons recommends inflating balloons 1-2 hours prior to the event for the best results.       How can we make Latex Balloons float longer?   There are a few things you can do to help increase float time. First, be sure to tie a tight knot in the neck of the balloon. If you are attaching ribbons to the balloons, be sure to tie the ribbon below the knot. For special occasions that require prolonged float time, we can add Ultra Hi Float to your Latex balloons (additional cost per balloon applies) What is Hi Float?    Hi Float is an aqueous non-toxic, no irritating, non-corrosive, non-flammable, and biodegradable solution that dries inside a latex balloon to form a barrier to helium escaping though the latex balloon membrane.  This coating increases the floating time of latex balloons by as much as 25 times the normal float times.

Some Interesting Facts About Latex Ballons - Perth Balloons

Some Interesting Facts About Latex Ballons Latex balloons are made from 100% natural latex — not plastic. Our latex balloons are biodegradable, and decompose as fast as an oak leaf in your backyard! Latex balloons come from rubber trees. Latex is collected by cutting the tree’s bark, then catching the latex in a cup. Latex harvesting doesn’t hurt the tree! Latex balloons are Earth-friendly! Rubber trees grow in rain forests. Latex harvesting discourages deforestation because latex-producing trees are left intact. A tree can produce latex for up to 40 years!   If the sound of a balloon popping startles you, you’re not alone. A bursting balloon actually creates a small sonic boom! Once a hole is made in an inflated balloon, the quick release of the balloon’s energy, or air, causes the hole to grow at almost the speed of sound in rubber. Since this speed is much higher than the speed of sound in air, the hole in the balloon actually breaks the sound barrier, creating a sonic boom. Balloons were invented in 1824, the same year as the electromagnet. Pioneer manufactures nearly one billion Qualatex latex balloons per year. Helium-filled balloons float because helium is lighter than nitrogen and oxygen, the two components of air.
