Balloon Shine™ and HI-SHINE are liquids applied to a latex balloon that will help it from oxidizing (lose its shine) for up to 10 times longer than a latex balloon not treated.
How to Apply Balloon Shine™ and HI-SHINE
- Inflate the balloon
- Hold the neck of the balloon in one hand while pushing the top of the balloon against a table.
- Apply half a spray to each side of the balloon.
- Evenly apply the liquid using the glove provided with the bottle. Do not over-apply the shine to a balloon.
- Slowly rub the liquid into the latex with the application glove. Using this method will help to avoid fingerprints on the balloon.
Treating balloons with HI-FLOAT® and Balloon Shine™ or
- Begin by treating the balloon with HI-FLOAT. See the article How to Apply HI-FLOAT
- Inflate the latex balloon with helium.
- Tie the balloon and attach your ribbon. Don't forget to secure the balloon to a weight.
- Once the Hi-Float dries*, apply the balloon shine by following steps 1-4 listed above.
Please Note: It is important to let the Hi-Float dry before applying shine. The liquid in the balloon needs time to evaporate in order to create the seal inside. If you apply the shine before the Hi-Float evaporates you will not get quality results.
If Hi-Float is being used in a humid environment then you should wait for 3 to 4 hours before applying shine or Hi-Float. If you are in a temperature-controlled environment– then wait for 1 to 2 hours before applying. It is recommended not to use balloons in direct sunlight because it will damage and reduce the float time of your balloons.
*Do not use HI-FLOAT® products or shine products on Bubbles, or latex balloons inside of Bubble Balloons.
