To treat an 11-inch latex balloon with a 75 percent helium/25 percent air mixture, you do not need to buy a special gas mixture. Just follow these simple steps:
- Inject ULTRA HI-FLOAT® into the balloon (using the white restriction clip on the pump dispenser) and rub.
- Blow the balloon up with air or nitrogen to 7-inches diameter.
- Blow the balloon up the rest of the way with helium.
The key to success is adding enough helium for the balloons to float initially. Depending on your climate/altitude you may need to change the mixture slightly to get the balloon to float well initially. If the balloon floats immediately, it should float for at least three or four days.
