Re: Popping with dog in house

The distress does not go away instantly, he can just blow to pop let's say 5 balloons and then check the dog. No need to involve others.

Re: Popping with dog in house

I think it is pretty easy to see if the dog is distressed by it. It will probably try to either hide somewhere or escape the house or start shivering if it hates it.

Re: bsa 17" royal rich colors - discontinued :(

BSA is the same manufacturer as Qualatex, why am I not suprised.

You said royal rich colors, which colours will they they still make?

Re: 14" tuftex discontinued :(

Those small scale looner productions will never be able to compete on price with the big manufacturers. Those are making millions of balloons per day and got the econmy of scale on their side.

Re: 14" tuftex discontinued :(

I can no longer find them under their products: https://www.globospayaso.com/en/products.php

As far as I heared you can still make special orders. For Unique 16" minimum order is 100k per colour....

Re: 14" tuftex discontinued :(

seems like many balloons get discontinued lately.

U15/U16/U26 for example are gone, too

Re: Why was the Q24 discontinued?

They could have just raised the price on them, I believe they were fairly cheap compared to the 24" balloons of other brands.
They could take note of companies like Cattex that produce so many...

Re: Cholorprene balloons?

4ft is only about 70% of 5.5ft, so not very unusual to be soft. I guess they would get tighter if they reach 100%+ of their rated size, just like usual balloons. But I cannot say for sure since I...

Re: How about some scientific approach on balloon popping? :-)

That is quite possible, but good luck hitting the right moment. Plus not every balloon would reach 165db anyway. You can b2p 10 balloons from one lot and each one will sound a bit different. If you...

Re: Long term Balloon Storage - Tuftex 17

Probably not if you heat them back up to room temperature before inflating them.
Usually you can put inflated balloons into liquid nitrogen and they survive just fine if you take them back out.

Re: Ebay Vintage Punch balloon sale

I think you can reproduce pretty much any colour with the currently used additives. It is more likely that Qualatex decided that the new colours sell better than the old ones. Did you check their...

Re: Perfectly round giant balloons?

I have done quite a few 36"+ balloons in my videos already, they usually get to at least 45" before popping. But red20 said nothing about his usecase, so maybe overinflation is not an option.

Re: Ebay Vintage Punch balloon sale

They seem like really thick latex considering they weight as much as two 36" balloons. So I would not be sure about it. Plus back then they used different additives to the latex that no longer get...

Re: How about some scientific approach on balloon popping? :-)

It seems like they only measured pin pops. Maybe pops due to overinflation work differently? There loudness is also much less than overinflation. Overinflation can cause pops that are upto 165db and...

Re: Perfectly round giant balloons?

40" is barely bigger than 3' though. I bet it can get to 50" or so before popping, but that is always a risk which he might not want to take

147 to 120000 is closer to 0.1% than 1% though

Re: My first random pop

I can confirm that the quality feels worse and worse. Not sure if just old batches of balloons reach europe, but I have many Q16 that pop early. It is not a brand I would recommend to any non poppers.

Re: Perfectly round giant balloons?

Paddle balloons never become perfectly round.
I think Qualatex is making some round cloudbusters larger than 3"

Re: Tips and recommendations for an anxious returnee :)

Definitely use ear protection and maybe also eye protection. Then you can be sure nothing bad happens except maybe angry neighbors depending on your living situation.

Re: Balloon dresses

Seems very impractical considering how often you would have to remake the dress because balloons will oxidize, lose air or even pop.

Re: Roomtex Balloons

they have to list the contents on the package for the customs
technically they could also use different terms like "party supplies", but not sure if that is any less suspicious

Re: Long term Balloon Storage - Tuftex 17

Storing balloons as cool as possible is a good way to increase their lifetime. Chemical reaction speed doubles roughly every 10 kelvin.
So dark, cool and in ziplock bags is the way to go. But make...
