Our balloons are made from liquid latex, which is tapped from rubber trees and then brought to our factory in Italy where it is dyed with natural pigments to create a rainbow of over 60 beautiful colours. Our ceramic molds, developed over many years, are then dipped into the vats of latex before passing through a tunnel of hot air. The heat triggers the vulcanization process. The balloons are then removed from their molds with a jet of air, washed and dried and then inflated ready for printing. When the design has dried they can be packaged and are ready to lift the moment all around the world.

Gemar® uses responsibly sourced natural rubber latex also known as caoutchouc, a milky sap harvested from the Hevea Brasiliensis rubber tree in the same way that maple syrup is tapped from maple trees.

 Yes, Gemar® manufactures helium quality balloons. Please check our Helium table information for recommended sizes. 

Check our table of recommended helium values by balloon size.

There are a few things that affect how long a balloon lasts after being inflated, the weather and room temperature are important factors. Balloons filled with air last longer than those filled with helium, and latex balloons can be treated with HI-FLOAT to make them last longer. To prolong their life, we recommend keeping pre-inflated balloons in a sealed balloon transport bag until they are used.

Gemar balloons are manufactured from rubber latex, a natural polymer that is preserved throughout our manufacturing processes. According to a report issued by Burchette, a latex balloon biodegrades at about the same rate as an oak leaf in natural soil conditions. Following scientific testing, latex balloons biodegrade approx. 90% within 2 years. For more information please write to [email protected]. Despite latex balloons being 100% bio-based, Gemar® does not recommend balloon releases because what goes up must come down. Litter of any kind is unsightly and potentially dangerous to wildlife. We recommend that all balloons are popped and binned after use. Our motto is “Don’t let go”.

No! Latex balloons are made from natural rubber latex which is naturally occurring. They are more accurately described as an elastomeric rubber which has very different physical and chemical properties to plastics.
