How Long Will Helium Gas Balloons Stay Afloat?

How Long Will Balloons Stay Afloat?

Latex Balloons will last approximately 8 - 10 hours however extreme temperatures will reduce float time. It is always best to inflate these type of balloons just prior to your event.

We have a great range of 30cm helium quality latex balloons available in many colours including:-

Decorator Helium Quality Balloons

Metallic Helium Quality Balloons

Pearl Helium Quality Balloons

Foil balloons hold helium well as they are non porous, the helium usually escapes from the valve over time rather than the surface of the balloon. Because of this foil balloons have a long float time and can last for well for 7 - 10 days and remain afloat for weeks.

Check out our fantastic range of Foil Balloons for every occasion

There are several different grades of Helium that can be used for inflating balloons.

The helium gas that Padstow Food Service Supplies is greater than 99% helium purity versus balloon gas that can contain up to 5% nitrogen or oxygen diluting the product from 99% to 95% purity.
