Balloons Over FAQs
3. What are the environmental implications of using latex balloons?
Latex balloons are not
harmful for the environment, as they are 100%, biodegradable. After
inflation, the latex begins to breakdown when exposed to the atmosphere and sunlight. About three hours after a balloon is released,
4. What causes the high-pitched voice associated with inhaling helium?
The sound quality of a person’s voice will change after inhaling helium, because helium is less dense than the air in the atmosphere. Although the gas is nontoxic, inhaling helium can displace oxygen in the body, which will cause headaches, dizziness, labored breathing, and eventually unconsciousness.
5. Why are balloons so loud when they pop?
Air is compressed inside of an inflated balloon. When a hole is created, the pop that is heard is the sound of energy released instantly. Since this speed is much higher than the speed of sound in air, the hole in the balloon actually breaks the sound barrier, creating a sonic boom.
6. What is Hi-Float®?
Hi-Float is a non-toxic solution containing a water-soluble plastic that extends the float time of a latex balloon. When dried inside of a balloon, the solution that is similar to the adhesive on the back of a postage stamp, forms a coating which helps to hold in helium.
7. How long will a balloon float?
* Please remember that these are estimates based on typical indoor conditions and following all of the instructions contained in this website. Flying time will be less if outdoors. Flying time varies greatly due to factors such as latex quality, humidity, temperature, altitude, etc. Balloons typically half as long in hot, humid weather. For maximum floating life, hand-tie balloons.
8. How much helium would it take to lift a person?
A helium balloon experiences an upward force that is equal to
the weight of the air it displaces (the buoyant force on the
balloon) minus its own
weight. At sea level, air weighs about 0.078 pounds per cubic foot, so
helium is the amount of extra weight that the helium can lift, which is about
