LATEX BALLOONS FROM
BALLOON AND PRINTING MFG (PTY) LTD 
A NATURAL AND RESPONSIBLE PRODUCT

Rubber trees remove CO2 and therefore help to reduce global warming.

Latex Balloons are biodegradable, latex is a renewable resource.

Highest quality and safty standards ensure that all our latex balloons live up to the EN71 (toy safety) and EN71-12 (Nitrosamines and Nitrosatable Amines) Testing.

In our balloon factory all facilities conform with all global ethical and safety standards.

The balloons have excellent helium and air retention due to a high-tech and sophisticated molecular cross-link which creates a high-quality barrier, redusing gas permeability. This contributes to the saving of helium.

Don't let latex balloons go into the sky and dispose of the products correctly. This protects the environment and avoids unnecessary litter.

A variety of different colour, shapes and finishes combined with new ideas, trends and innovative designs ensure a wide and attractive assortment.

Latex Balloons are made of natural latex, also known as caoutchouc, that is harvested from the rubber tree sustainably without harming the tree.

"Don't Let Go"

As a company we place great value on sustainability. We wish to protect the environment from unnecessary litter. That’s why we ask consumers to keep latex balloons securely with them - don’t let them go into the sky and dispose of the products correctly.

Be the solution!     Stop pollution!     Do not litter!

How are balloons made?

MORE DETAIL

All our latex balloons are made of natural latex, also known as caoutchouc. Latex is a sticky, milky liquid which is harvested from the rubber tree. It is extracted by making incisions into the bark of the tree, catching the fluid in pots. This process is called “tapping“. The latex then is refined into rubber,ready for commercial processing. All our latex balloons are biodegradable and are made without using any fillers, extenders, plasticizers or any cost reducing agents.

We always aim for the highest quality standards and therefore all our latex balloons live up to the EN71 (toy safety) and EN71-12 (nitrosamines and nitrosatable amines) testing. Thousands of tests are conducted yearly to ensure conformance with these regulations. The tests are done inhouse and via independent third party laboratories. We are one of few producers who owns the necessary testing equipment (liquid chromatograph and mass spectrometer). Besides, our facilities conform with all global ethical and safety standards (BSCI and SEDEX). 

Due to constant research and ongoing development of not only the latex’s chemical composition, but also throughout the entire manufacturing process, we are able to deliver high-tech balloons. Superior quality inks (EN-71 approved), larger printing areas, and more vibrant and solid colours guarantee the highest visual impact.

In order to create different colours, add texture and depth to our latex balloons we use a variety of different finishes and shades: Standard, Fashion, Crystal, Metallic, Macaron and Satin Lux.

The balloons have excellent helium and air retention due to a high-tech and sophisticated molecular cross-link which creates a high-quality barrier, reducing gas permeability. Low burst levels are achieved by great elasticity of the rubber film. Long helium flotation or air inflation results in longer lasting decorations.

The colours of our wide assortment derive from the Pantone Matching System (PMS), which means every colour has its own unique colour code. Keeping up with new ideas, trends, and designs, we regularly update our range of balloons.
