What is Latex Balloons?
Whether buying a single balloon or latex in bulk, the material is identical.
Currently made from rubber, these are available in a wide range of colors, sizes and shapes.
A nice benefit is that these balloons can be inflated using both air and helium.
Likewise, filling with helium, the balloon will rise, whereas those filled with air will not.
Although, these balloons is an amazing choice for party avenue.
If the sound of the balloon is popping, you are not alone. A bursting balloons actually creates a sonic boom!
Once a hole is made in an inflated balloon, the quick release of the balloon’s energy, or air, causes the hole to grow at almost the speed of sound in rubber.
Since the speed is much higher than the speed of sound in air, the hole in the balloon actually breaks the sound barrier, creating a sonic boom.
When it is released outside, as long as it is tied up and has no structural flaws, it will rise to an altitude of about five miles.
At that elevation it will freeze and break into pieces that scatter as they return to earth.
Advantages and Disadvantages
The benefit of using latex balloons is the fact that they are much less expensive than foil balloons.
If you are thinking about using a lot of balloons, it would be more cost-effective if you used latex.
The reason is because you will get a lot of balloons for the money.
Latex balloons are available in all different colors and can be filled with water, air or helium, making them very versatile.
The drawback for using latex is that they pose a major choking risk for children.
They are also slightly porous, making it easier for the helium or air to seep out fairly quickly.
If you celebrating in cool temperatures, this will also cause helium-filled latex balloons to deflate faster.
