Product Info

Will balloons and foil balloons last overnight?
Standard size latex filled helium balloons stay afloat for approx 8 – 12 hours, whereas helium filled balloons float for 2-5 days. If you want your latex balloons to float longer there is a useful product that you can add Helium Hi-Float Treatment Kit which helps the balloons float up to 25 times longer! Mylar/Foil balloons will last much longer than latex in the sun, up to 24 hours, sometimes longer. Always under-inflate your balloons to allow the expansion from heat. Inflating balloons with the same air temperature as on the outside will help them retain their shape better. Don’t leave your balloons outside overnight .
