Treating Pearlized and Metallic Balloons
Pearlized and metallic balloons float for about two-thirds as long as regular colored balloons. Check out our Pearlized or Metallic Balloons video on you tube. To get the maximum float life possible, use one of the following methods:
Pre-Treat Pearlized or Metallic Balloons to Maximize Float Life
Balloons may be pre-treated with HI-FLOAT several days before they need to be inflated, saving time on the day of your event.
Pre-Stretch Pearlized or Metallic Balloons to Maximize Float Life
Pre-stretching pearlized and metallic balloons will provide about the same increase in float time as the pretreating procedure described above. Stretching balloons with air before they are inflated with helium allows them to be inflated to a larger size.
