"Evidence has proven that the inhalation of helium can be fatal, yet thousands of party goers inhale helium thinking it is very funny rather than life threatening. The inhalation of helium cuts off a person's supply of oxygen and can cause dizziness,unconsciousness, an embolism and ultimately death!"

Helium balloons delivered on Saturday will not be suitable for a Sunday function unless the HI FLOAT option is selected.

Foil Balloons DO NOT require HI FLOAT, and will last 5+ days dependant on the environment. 

Please note if you wish to hang photographs/pictures from helium balloons, to create a floating effect, we would suggest you use clusters of to 2-3 Helium Balloons to support the weight over the duration of the event. Please contact us about using 45cm, 60cm, 75cm or 90 cm balloons to ensure your photos look amazing floating from the ceiling for the duration of your event.  A single 30cm helium balloon will not support a photograph/picture adequately over a sustained duration of time.


What is HI-FLOAT?

HI-FLOAT balloon treatment is a solution of a plastic material dissolved in water. It forms a coating inside latex balloons that greatly reduces helium or air loss. With ULTRA HI-FLOAT, party decorations can be prepared a day ahead of time, and balloon bouquets will float for several days.

Helium-filled latex balloons float 25 times longer on average with ULTRA HI-FLOAT.

HI-FLOAT is very safe. It is nontoxic, non-irritating, noncorrosive, nonflammable and biodegradable. It is similar to the glue on the back of postage stamps.


How long will balloons float when treated with HI-FLOAT?

When used properly, ULTRA HI-FLOAT increases the floating life of latex balloons by up to 25 times, on average.

The following table shows typical floating times for various sizes of balloons:

Latex Balloon SizeLatex Balloon TypeAverage Flying Time (Helium Only*)

Average Flying Time

24 inchesROUND2-4 days4-10 weeks
3feet/90cmGIANT3-5 days6-20 weeks

To achieve these float times balloons must be kept indoors, in a climate controlled location

Please remember that these are estimates based on typical indoor conditions, and following all instructions. Float times will be shorter outdoors. Float times vary greatly based on factors such as latex quality, humidity, temperature, altitude, etc. Balloons typically float for half as long in hot, humid weather. For maximum float life, hand-tie balloons.


Is HI-FLOAT safe?

Yes. HI-FLOAT is nontoxic, nonirritating, noncorrosive, nonflammable and biodegradable. It is very similar to the adhesive found on the back of postage stamps. Simply wash it off of skin with water. If the product is accidentally splashed into the eyes, flush the eyes with water for several minutes. Although HI-FLOAT is nontoxic, it is a good idea to keep bottles away from small children.
