Inflating Method
  • Press the water bag inside the balloon, shake it, and watch the balloon self-inflate in moments!
  • Food-grade baking soda and citric acid reaction to produce carbon dioxide (CO2).
  • Carbon dioxide is safe, non-toxic, odorless.
  • Cannot be filled with helium
  • Balloon cannot fly like a helium balloon because it is filled with carbon dioxide.
  • Inflate with electric air compressor
  • Must manually knot immediately once inflated
  • Can be filled with helium at increased cost
Assembly Method
  • Patented clipper – simple buckle
  • Before inflating, be sure to clamp first.
  • After inflating, pinch the mouthpiece and manually knot.
  • Or with a balloon stick, wrap the mouthpiece around the tray.
Inflatable Days
  • It can be maintained for more than 30 days in room temperature. (including airtight aluminum foil layer)
  • Do not place under the sun at high temperatures for an extended period of time as this will speed up the degassing rate of any balloon.
  • High-quality pure latex balloons can last for about 7-14 days at room temperature.
  • Generally low-cost non-pure latex balloons may only be 2-5 days.
  • If it is filled with helium, the floating time in the air can last for about 8-30 hours.
  • If the balloon is under the sun too long, it will break.
Reusability
  • Can only be inflated once and cannot be reused.
  • Repeated filling of air after degassing
Durability
  • Contains foil inside layer by a special sealing process.
  • Under average stress, it can withstand pressure of about 50 kg.
  • Balloon can easily be broken by inadvertently touching sharp corners or squeezing, depending on the thickness of the balloon ordered.
Storage Method
  • When uninflated, the balloon can be stored for more than 3 years.
  • The balloon should be stored away from sunlight to avoid fading or damage from ultraviolet rays.
  • When sealed from moisture and away from sunlight, balloon can be stored for 2-3 years.
  • Prolonged exposure to air will oxidize. Seal properly to avoid exposure to moisture.
Content
  • Low-concentration food grade citric acid (weak acid) and baking soda powder (weak base) are common elements in daily life, and changes in salt and water are produced after acid-base neutralization and dilution.
  • Although rare, if you accidentally puncture the balloon and contact the liquid in the ball, you only need to rinse it with plenty of water, it is safe, non-corrosive, and non-toxic.
  • No content inside the balloon.
  • If helium is used, it is safe and non-flammable, but excessive inhalation should be avoided.
Origin
  • High-quality made in Taiwan
  • Worldwide delivery
  • Mostly made in Mexico
