Shelf life and product integrity

Pink latex balloonsSHELF LIFE

Because our balloons are made with 100% premium quality latex, they have a shelf life of one year or longer if kept in proper conditions. To ensure the maximum shelf life, we offer the following recommendations:

Always rotate stock-first in, first out.

Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area.

Optimum temperature range is 68°F – 72°F.

Keep away from electrical motors, hot water pipes and other sources of heat.

Keep balloons away from direct light sources including sunlight, fluorescent and incandescent light.


  • Balloons are made from 100% natural latex which breaks down when exposed to the elements of nature.
  • Latex is harvested from rubber trees.  The trees are not harmed in the harvesting process.
  • Studies indicate that the typical decomposition time for a balloon is about 6 months (about the same as an oak leaf).  We still ask that you use smart balloon practice when filling balloons.
