What is HI float balloon treatment?

Rate this Question and Answer
Asked By: Ares Ciriaco | Last Updated: 6th March, 2020
HIFLOAT balloon treatment is a solution of a plastic material dissolved in water. Helium-filled latex balloons float 25 times longer on average with ULTRA HIFLOAT, and air-filled latex balloons maintain full size for over one month with ULTRA HIFLOAT. HIFLOAT is very safe.





Similarly one may ask, how long do balloons with hi float last?

11” latex balloons generally last between 12-20 hours filled with helium, and about 2-3 days when treated with HiFloat. Foil balloons last approx. 5-7 days. Air-filled balloons generally last for a couple of weeks, but will not float.

Beside above, can you use hi float without helium? The gas used to fill the balloon doesn’t matter. Once the HiFloat is dry, it will block (or at least slow) any gas from exiting. I hardly use any helium in my work, but I do use HiFloat from time to time in air-filled balloons so they last longer. And an air-filled balloon with HiFloat will last a REALLY long time.

Likewise, people ask, how do you make a high float?

ULTRA HIFLOAT. 11-inch clear latex balloons.



  1. Add 1 squirt of Ultra HI-FLOAT with purple clip on pump.
  2. Rub the outside of the Deco Bubble to spread the coating over the inside surface.
  3. Blow a puff of air into the Bubble so the sides of the balloon are not touching.
  4. Add about a ½ cup chopped Mylar confetti.

Does Hi float really work?

Yes, ULTRA HIFLOAT can be used to prolong the life of air-filled balloons. HIFLOAT prevents air from escaping through the walls of a latex balloon. It actually does an even better job of preventing loss with air than it does with helium. HIFLOAT works in air-filled round and non-round balloons, such as 260s.

Does Party City have high float?

With our Hi-Float Balloon Treatment, latex balloons retain their size and shape much longer; float times increase up to 25 times more. Party on!

What can you put in a balloon to make it float?

How To Make A Floating Balloon Without Helium
  1. Take a bottle and fill it the mixture of Sodium hydroxide and aluminum.
  2. Add water inside the bottle.
  3. Now its time to attach a balloon to the top of this bottle containing the mixture that we just mentioned here.

Can I make a balloon arch the night before?

If you want to do your helium-filled arch the night before the event, I highly recommend you treat your balloons with hi-float. If you are planning to do an air-filled arch, then it’s fine to create the arch the day before.

How far in advance can I make balloon decorations?

Some professionals blow up their air filled balloons up to 3 weeks before the event, but I would suggest you should inflate them a maximum of 5 days in advance. Store the inflated balloons in a large, clear plastic bag that closes tightly over the balloons.

What type of balloons last the longer?

Mylar balloons are nonporous, so when inflated with helium, a standard 11-inch balloon will stay inflated between three and five days in optimal conditions, whereas a latex balloon filled with air deflates in about 8 to 12 hours.

How long does Hi Float take to dry?

if you use hi float it takes about an hour to dry in an 11″, in warm conditions.

Can I use hi float in confetti balloons?

Any latex balloon can be treated with a liquid plastic called HiFloat. In order to avoid making a giant, gross, wet, sticky mess of your confetti, you can‘t use HiFloat. AND, in order to get the confetti to stick to the sides, you can‘t use as much helium in your balloons.

How do you make Hi float balloons with confetti?

First, squeeze the right amount of hifloat gel into your balloon and gently massage them around. Avoid rubbing too hard that you create tiny bubbles as this will allow helium to escape quicker. Then using a funnel, pour appropriate amount of confetti into your balloon.

How do you keep balloons from oxidation?

A quick and easy way to prevent oxidation (chalkiness) on the outside of latex balloons is to apply ULTRA HI-FLOAT coating to the outside of the balloon before inflation. This method can be used for helium- or air-filled balloons.

How do you make air balloons last longer?

You can extend the flying time of your helium-filled latex balloons quite significantly by treating the un-inflated balloon with a product called ULTRA HI-FLOAT. HI-FLOAT contains a water-soluble plastic, which dries inside the balloon to form a coating which helps to retain the helium molecules.

How do you make latex balloons float longer?

How to Keep Latex Balloons Longer
  1. Keep the latex balloons away from heat. Keeping them in cooler temperatures will prolong the life of the latex balloon.
  2. Use a 60/40 inflater to inflate your latex balloons.
  3. Spray hi-float into your balloon before using a 60/40 inflater.
  4. Keep the balloon tied tightly.

How many balloons fit in a garbage bag?

I use the pop-up hamper, but bring it in covered by a garbage bag and just remove the bag prior to displaying the hamper filled with balloons. As you can see, it is very light in weight and can hold about 100 balloons.

Can I keep helium balloons in a bag?

If the balloons are going to be used in multiple events, then it is better to store them in plastic bags, covering, or balloon bags, which is specially made for doing this. These bags preserve the balloons for later events so that you can decorate the event without any fuss.

What do they put in helium balloons to make them last longer?

What is ULTRA HI-FLOAT? It’s a patented liquid solution that dries inside latex helium-filled balloons to form a coating that helps hold in the helium. A single squirt inside the balloon keeps it floating longer – up to 25 times longer!

How do you make a balloon float without baking soda or helium?

The Facebook post says you need white vinegar, baking soda, an empty plastic water bottle, a funnel and, of course, a balloon. First, fill the water bottle about 1/3 of the way full with white vinegar. Next, put baking soda into the un-inflated balloon, filling it about halfway.

How does vinegar and baking soda make a balloon float?

Use a funnel to add 1/3 cup baking soda to the inside of a balloon. Fill a plastic bottle with approximately 1 cup vinegar. Attach the balloon to the mouth of the plastic bottle, then lift the balloon upright so the baking soda falls and causes the reaction.

Is helium flammable gas?

At room temperature helium is an odorless, tasteless, colorless gas. Helium is one of the inert or noble gases. This means that its outside electron shell is filled with electrons. This makes it very unreactive and non-flammable.
