Latex Balloons

At Koch & Co, we stock an extensive colour range of traditional round balloons, also known as latex balloons. All our latex balloons are premium quality, and are helium grade balloons imported directly from the US. This means that our latex balloons can be inflated with helium, and will float for a longer period of time than a standard latex balloon of the same size will. 

At Koch & Co, we stock latex helium balloons in many different colours, including ever-popular pastels like our pastel blue balloons, which are a popular option for birthday parties and baby showers. Our latex range also comes available in a variety of finishes, including pearl, metallic, and matte balloons. You can also find a wide selection of foil balloons and balloon accessories on our website and in-store. Shop our collection of helium balloons today.

The Best Latex Balloons Online

At Koch & Co, our range consists exclusively of premium quality helium-grade latex balloons. Helium-grade latex balloons differ from standard latex balloons in that they are thicker and less porous. This means that less helium escapes from these balloons and they float for longer periods of time. For your convenience, we offer our quality latex balloons online, delivered directly to your door. As a wholesale events decorating supplier, we import our balloons directly from our US manufacturers, and as such, we price our latex balloons wholesale so that our customers can enjoy the savings of bulk latex balloons.

Gorgeous Pastel Balloons For Your Special Event

Pastel latex balloons have taken the events decorating industry by storm, especially in the form of balloon garlands for birthday parties. Pastel tints provide a soft and sophisticated alternative to traditionally brightly coloured party balloons. Pastel balloons can be difficult to source, and if you require latex balloons in pastel tints not available in our range, consider double stuffing with our existing range. Double stuffing is the process of layering one colour of latex balloon within another colour to yield subtle and unique balloon colours. A way to achieve pastel tints is with white balloons over coloured balloons. For example, pastel pink can be achieved by placing white over pink, and pastel lime can be achieved with white over lime. If you’re after a matte finish, double stuffing can boost shine. However, matte pastel balloons can be achieved with some exposure to the outdoors. Outdoor exposure causes all balloons to oxidise, which means that the typical shininess gives way to a chalkier matte finish (and sometimes colour fading). Take care not to overheat your balloons, which can shorten their lifespan by biodegrading them or cause them to pop if filled with helium.

High Quality Matte Balloons & Pearl Balloons

Our range of latex balloons includes fashion, pearl, metallic, and matte. Fashion latex balloons are what you might think of as ‘standard’. These balloons are offered in the largest range of colours from light pastels to rich darker colours. The finish of fashion latex balloons is opaque and shiny smooth.

Trusted Australian Brand For Round Balloons In Different Colours & Styles

At Koch & Co, we are established latex balloon suppliers who service events professionals across Australia. Our range of latex helium balloons are high quality helium-grade latex balloons, imported from a global leading manufacturer in the USA. With balloons in a huge range of colours and finishes, at Koch & Co, you will be able to find the latex balloons you need for your event. Whether it’s pastel pink balloons for a baby shower or pearl balloons for a subtle glow in your balloon garland, you can check out our extensive helium balloons range at our Koch & Co Superstore in Auburn, NSW. Alternatively, you can order our latex balloons online, and get them delivered to your door.

 
Are all balloons latex?

Latex balloons are the popular choice for most events but they’re not the only product available when it comes to balloons. If you have a specific theme, colour palette, or event, at Koch & Co, we have a balloon to suit your needs. From large foil number balloons for a 50th birthday, pastel pink balloons for a baby shower to transparent bubble balloons that you can use to make a balloon within a balloon, the sky’s the limit when it comes to Koch & Co, and helium balloons.

Can latex balloons be filled with helium?

When making your selections, please keep in mind that not all latex balloons are the same. Standard latex balloons do not hold helium as well as helium grade balloons, with the latter floating more reliably for extended periods of time. Standard latex balloons can be filled with helium, but will not float on a string in the same way a helium latex balloon will. For your convenience and quality assurance, all latex balloons sold at Koch & Co are helium grade and premium quality.

Our range of latex helium balloons comes in a 12-inch size, which is the industry standard. This size of the balloon is standard not only because it’s versatile, but also because it can contain enough helium to make the whole balloon lighter than air. If you want to float smaller balloons than this size, you may encounter some issues due to the reduced amount of helium they can contain.

Can you blow up latex balloons with your mouth?

You can blow up latex round balloons with your mouth but it’s probably wiser to inflate them with an air pump. This will save you from a sore jaw, dizziness, and feeling out of breath if you have more than a couple of balloons to inflate.

Do latex balloons float?

Standard latex balloons can be filled with helium but will not float on a string in the same way latex helium balloons will. At Koch & Co, our latex range is exclusively helium-grade latex. These balloons are designed for helium inflation, and as such will float for longer than the standard latex variety. See our range of helium tanks to inflate your latex balloons with ease.

How long do latex balloons stay inflated in the air?

When a latex balloon is inflated with helium if kept indoors and at a moderate temperature, the average float time is around six to eight hours. Latex helium balloons are impacted negatively by the elements, which is why it’s generally a good idea to keep balloons indoors. Sun and rain cause latex balloons to begin breaking down and lose their shine. The heat from the sun also causes expansion of helium molecules, which causes possible popping of balloons, as well as more rapid helium loss through the pores in the latex. This causes premature deflation, so take care with your balloons.

If you need your balloons floating for longer than six to eight hours or are planning to display your balloons outside, consider using Koch & Co’s TOP Float. Our TOP Float is a balloon booster treatment gel that is non-toxic. Adding this gel to balloons before inflation creates a coating inside latex balloons. This coating reduces helium/air loss, and can extend the period of balloon inflation to between ten and fifteen days.

How long do air filled latex balloons last?

Though latex balloons inflated with air do not float, they remain inflated for more than a week, which is considerably longer than latex helium balloons. This means that air-filled balloons can be inflated more in advance than helium balloons can. If you are inflating your latex balloons in advance, take care to keep them in a garbage bag to help slow the oxidisation of your balloons’ shiny finish.

Are latex balloons recyclable?

Unfortunately, your local waste and recycling services do not consider latex balloons as recyclable goods. They need to be disposed of responsibly in landfill. 

Are latex balloons biodegradable?

Latex balloons are manufactured from latex, which is derived from the sap of rubber trees. Seeing as the source material is of a plant origin, this means that latex balloons should be able to biodegrade, but take note, latex balloons do not biodegrade.

This is why it is of paramount importance to dispose of balloons and balloon accessories responsibly. All balloon products should go to landfill, and no helium balloons should never be released into the sky. 

Are latex balloons environmentally friendly?

When balloons are no longer deemed usable, they need to be responsibly disposed of. All balloon products should go to landfill. 

At some events, like funerals, a mass balloon release can be a symbolic gesture. Though poignant, these balloons eventually pop and land in places up to hundreds of kilometres away. When they land in wildlife habitats, these popped balloons are often mistaken for jellyfish or fish and are eaten by sea animals. Due to the stretchy nature of balloons, they easily enter the intestines and block them, causing animals to starve. Wildlife also suffer risk from balloon strings, in which they can easily become entangled and injured. For these reasons and more, it is essential that we dispose of balloon products responsibly. Furthermore, many state governments in Australia have imposed or are in the process of imposing harsh penalties for mass balloon releases.
