Pre-Treating Balloons

Balloons may be pre-treated with HI-FLOAT several days before they need to be inflated, saving time on the day of your event. Check out our Pretreating Balloons video on YouTube.

Treat balloons with the correct amount of ULTRA HI-FLOAT. Use the orange clip for 11-inch balloons, and refer to the clip guide for other sizes. Be sure to get the pump nozzle down into the base of the balloon, and pinch the neck of the balloon as you remove it from the pump to wipe off any excess HI-FLOAT.

Gently rub the base of the balloon to spread the ULTRA HI-FLOAT.

Set the treated balloon aside, positioned so that the HI-FLOAT cannot flow into the neck of the balloon or leak out.

Gather treated balloons in groups of 10, and band the necks together with ribbon or a rubber band. This will keep the HI-FLOAT from drying out.

Pre-Treating Balloons

Leave the balloons at room temperature in banded groups of 10 for up to one week. Do not store the balloons in a refrigerator.

Before inflating the balloons, remove the ribbon or rubber band and gently rub the balloons to redistribute the ULTRA HI-FLOAT inside the balloons.

Inflate the balloons with helium and tie as normal.
