What type of balloon lasts the longer?

Mylar balloons are nonporous, so when inflated with helium, a standard 11-inch balloon will stay inflated between three and five days in optimal conditions, whereas a latex balloon filled with air deflates in about 8 to 12 hours.

Keeping this in consideration, what balloons last the longest?

11” latex balloons generally last between 12-20 hours filled with helium, and about 2-3 days when treated with Hi-Float. Foil balloons last approx. 5-7 days. Air-filled balloons generally last for a couple of weeks, but will not float.

Secondly, why do some helium balloons last longer? Helium balloons float because helium is less dense than air. Helium balloons deflate because helium atoms are small enough to slip between spaces in the balloon material. Helium balloons are Mylar and not rubber because there is less space between the molecules in Mylar, so the balloon stays inflated longer.

Additionally, how do you make balloons last longer?

How to Keep Latex Balloons Longer

  1. Keep the latex balloons away from heat. Keeping them in cooler temperatures will prolong the life of the latex balloon.
  2. Use a 60/40 inflater to inflate your latex balloons.
  3. Spray hi-float into your balloon before using a 60/40 inflater.
  4. Keep the balloon tied tightly.
