The most common kinds of latex balloons are "pastel", "metal", "mother of pearl" and "crystal":
- "pastel" balloons come in matte and have the widest palette of colors;
- "metal""metal" and "mother-of-pearl" is distinguished with a shiny, metallized surface;
- Crystal balloons https://balloons.online/crystal-balloons/ are transparent and feature the most brilliant balls that have saturated colors.
Pastel balloons are considered the most durable . The truth is that metallized and crystal balloons last less time than "pastel" balloons and their life span is one third less. On the other hand how balloons appear can be significantly affected by temperatures that are high when it is hot. translucent balloons "crystal" gradually become cloudy "metal" and less shiny, whereas "pastel" maintains its original form and appearance.
Latex balloons are available in range of sizes. Manufacturers put them in inches 5' (12 cm), 9' (22 cm), 12' (30 cm), 14' (35 cm), 16' (40 cm), 18' (45 cm) and 3' (70-80 cm).
The smaller 5" as well as 9" balloons are usually used to create garlands, and also for decoration (for example, they fill boxes of surprises). These balloons are not filled with helium because helium has a very short time-to-live and the balloon will rapidly deflate and then deflate.
The regular sizes twelve" as well as fourteen" balloons are widely used. They include balls that do not have a pattern or pattern, as well as balls with patterns and balls with confetti. The colors are the largest, and the balloons can be inflated with both helium and air (for decorative purposes) and could also be used to create garlands.
Larger diameter balloons, 16" as well as 18" have great lifting power that allows you to add garlands, tassels, and even stickers to decorate them. A good example for sixteen-foot (40 centimeters) balloons is Golden Glitter confetti balloons, 18' (45 cm) balloons are balloons of a large size with no pattern.
Three-foot (70-80 inches) the meter balloons can be the biggest (example). Despite their name, meters balloons are typically inflated to 70-80 centimeters, because otherwise, they might not be able to fit into the doorway and also more vulnerable to external influences and mechanical harm (the greater the inflation of the balloon the less its wall). The balloons can be opaque and transparent with different types of confetti. They could be embellished with inscriptions, garlands as well as they can be made large figures from balloons with Helium. For instance: the cat, a dog or unicorn, or even a the giraffe.
Agate balloons are balloons with incredible patterns that are similar to those of semiprecious stones. They are handmade from transparent colorless twelve" latex balloons using an advanced technique with acrylic paint. The design is not repeated and always unique. Do not worry, even if a balloon explodes, the paint will not smudge everything around, since we provide balloons time to dry completely prior to delivery. Therefore, only our workshops could be in danger during the time that balloons are drying.) That's why these balloons must be ordered at least one day in advance of delivery/self delivery.
They are perfect to use for photo shoots and memorable gifts , or for decorating fancy parties. However, because of the advancements in manufacturing technology that they use, the flight time for Agate balloons is less than 3 to 4 days in average. If it is essential to you that the balloons can fly for a prolonged time, you should probably be looking at other alternatives.
Confetti balloons can be described as a form in transparent, latex balloons ("crystal") that have the addition of confetti by hand. Confetti may be paper or metallic, in various sizes and shapes or in the same color or in a variety of shades. Confetti in a variety of sizes, colors and shapes can be combined into one balloon. These balloons are stunning and are perfect for photo shoots, unforgettable presents or decorating parties, they are guaranteed to create lots of happiness!
Balloons with confetti tend to fly a little smaller than normal balloons due to the fact that the confetti adds pounds onto the balloon and reduces its capacity to lift. As with any crystal ball that is transparent that undergo latex oxidation is evident most clearly on the confetti balls. Over time, they become smaller in size, more transparent and lose their shine (you will learn more about why this happens here). In normal conditions (at the normal temperature of indoors), this process takes a while, but in summer, under the influence of high temperatures as well as exposure to sun it accelerates significantly, so when it is hot and sunny when the balls are to be utilized outdoors, be prepared that they will lose their transparency, and you may wish to opt for opaque balloons if you aren't willing to take the risk.
There are two methods of making such balloons: with hiFloat treatments (so the confetti is equally distributed across the walls of the balloon, as well as the balloon itself is able to fly longer than without treatment) and with no the HiFloat process (then the confetti are placed on the bottom of the balloon and are able to move freely within the balloon, but the flight of such balloons lasts only twelve hours).
Foil balloons typically last longer than latex balloons. They do not require HiFloat treatment because their material is not able to allow molecules of helium to rapidly leave the balloon. Foil balloons gradually deflate without losing their attractive appearance and, if handled with care they can be filled with air (yourself with tubes) or helium! They are also perfect for personalizing messages with stickers, because they have a smooth surface where the sticker adheres evenly and remains on for a longer time.
The balloons that are oiled without pattern may be in form of heart, star circle, crescent, circle crystal, 3D sphere, hand branch, cube etc. They look great in sets combined with confetti and latex balloons!
There are many different designed foil balloons in various designs in addition to "walking balloons" which are filled with helium but do not rise high in the air due to small invisible weights - they start "walking" and living their lives with just the slightest movement in the air.
