Latex balloons are inflated and filled with helium and HI-FLOAT delivered. After delivery, the helium balloons will fly high only for 1-4 weeks


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. Check out our What is HI-FLOAT video on you tube.

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, and air-filled latex balloons maintain full size for over one month 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 25 times, on average. For ideal results, follow our Tips for Maximum Float Life.


To achieve these float times balloons must be kept indoors, in a climate controlled location, with the heater or air-conditioner running.

Please remember that these are estimates based on typical indoor conditions, and following all instructions on this web site. 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.
