How to Fill Foil Balloons with Helium?


Foil balloons are a great way to add some extra pizzazz to any celebration, and they can be filled with either air or helium. Helium-filled balloons tend to float for a lot longer than those filled with air, so if you want your foil balloons to really make a statement, helium is the way to go. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to fill a foil balloon with helium.

What You’ll Need

The first step is to gather all of the supplies you’ll need. You’ll need un-inflated balloons, of course! You can usually find these at your local party store or online. You’ll also need a helium tank. Finally, you’ll need some string or ribbon to tie off the end of the balloon once it’s been filled.



Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Inflate the balloon using a helium tank. Be sure not to over inflate the balloon; you just want it to be nice and round, not stretched out.

2. Once the balloon is inflated, tie off the end of the balloon with a knot.

3. The balloon should then be tied off using some string or ribbon.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 until all of your balloons are filled!



Foil floatation time

Balloons have a lifespan of at least 24 hours. However, the typical floating duration for latex balloons is just about 8 hours. Floating time might vary depending on the ambient temperature. When helium balloons are placed in a chilly environment, they may float for up to 10 hours. It is only suggested that you collect from us or choose delivery on the day of the event.



Points to Take note:

  • High temperatures, sun exposure, friction and force, and other factors will cause the balloon to deflate or burst.
  • Parental guidance is recommended for children to use the balloons.
  • Please throw away any defective balloons right away.
  • Because foil is not elastic, please do not over inflate the balloons.
  • Be aware of thermal expansion and contraction caused by weather changes.
  • If there are minor holes in the balloon that cause deflation, seal the holes with tape and that should enough.
  • When arranging the balloons, avoid any sharp objects or edges.
  • If air cannot pass through the opening tab, insert a straw until the obstruction is eliminated. Remove the straw and resume filling with air.


Adult supervision is required as un-inflated balloons can be a choking hazard. Keep un-inflated balloons out of reach from children and discard broken balloons. Do not inhale helium gas at all time, it can be a health hazard.
