Party Balloons : A floating decoration balloon is a floating flexible bag which when filled with helium gas floats. Balloons today are made from rubber, latex or nylon fabric. Party balloons are mostly manufactured from natural latex, which is tapped from rubber trees and these can be filled with heliu, air, water or other suitable liquids. The rubbers elasticity makes the volume adjustable. Filling the balloon with air can be done by mouth or a balloon pump which are available in manual and electric types. Filling the balloons with helium, which can be rented in cylinders from Air Products plc, who have agents in most parts of the UK and other companies, makes them float. An average float time for an 11 inch balloon correctly filled and tied is approx 16 hours, although you can add high float which tends to increase the floating time by coating the inside of the balloon to reduce leakage. When balloons are filled with helium, the helium atoms slowly escape through small pores in the latex which are larger than the helium atoms. Balloons filled with air normally hold both side and shape longer but unfortunately do not float. However, even a perfect rubber balloon loses gas to the outside in the end.
Modelling Balloons: Professional balloon artists are entertainers who tie and twist tubular model balloons into shapes and sculptures. Balloons that are used for ballon sculptures are usually made of extra stretchy rubber so that they can be tied and twisted without bursting. A balloon pump is usually used to inflate modelling balloons although a professional balloon artist will usually use an electric pump as the tiny tubular balloons are initally extremely hard to inflate. Professional decorators can use 100s of balloons to creat a sculpture. Normally the round shape of the balloon can restrict these to walls and arches, but many more ambitious sculptures have been made, these are usually in scenes with animals, people and even equipment.
Balloon Drops: An effective and decorative way of using balloons is the balloon drop. For a balloon drop a net is filled with air inflated balloons, which is then suspended from a high ceiling, preferably at least 12 feet, the higher the ceiling, the more effective the drop. Once released the balloons gradually cascade to the floor below. Balloon drops are often used in New Year Celebrations, Weddings, Dances, Proms, Theatres and Company functions. Water Balloons: These are made from thin small rubber balloons. They are filled with water not helium or air and easily break. Normally these are used by children at parties, competitions or games. The idea being that they throw them at each other trying to get each other wet.
Balloon Releases: These are a great way of fundraising and are sure to give that wow factor when they are relesed, they can also be used for corporate celebrations, the opening of a new business to name but a few.
Rocket Balloons: Come is vibrant colours of pink, yellow, green, orange, red and blue and will grow up to 30 inches in length. These are usually released at parties or celebrations. They work because the air that you have blown into them makes the balloon contract and when the end of the balloon is left open, the air within the balloon shoots out and the balloon is propelled forward, usually with a screeching noise.
Punch Balloons: Children love to play with Punch Balloons and it is a wonderful way for them to use up that energey all kids have, you can inflate to 14 inches and use the rubber handles to bounce and punch away. As with all balloons remember when small children are present you need adult supervision, always ensure broken and uninflated balloons are immediately disposed of safely. Do not sit or bounce on them.
