What material are balloons made of? Is it polluting the environment?
High-quality balloons are made of environmentally friendly rubber. The degradation begins when the balloon is blown up and exposed to air. This is confirmed by the phenomenon of oxidation on the surface of the balloon: shortly after the balloon is inflated, a layer of fog forms on the surface. Heat and sunlight speed up the process. High-quality balloons will be like leaves after being decomposed into the soil in a few weeks without causing environmental pollution.
Are balloons safe?
It is recommended to use high-quality balloons that meet environmental protection requirements and can be decomposed by microorganisms to make modeling balloons. First: it is safe and not easy to break. Second: it can be used for more difficult and complex weaving. In addition, when designing with balloons, since air is used, there is no safety concern. But if you want to float in the air with a round balloon, be sure to use safe helium to fill it, and hydrogen is prohibited. Also, never allow children to put balloons in their mouths as there may be a choking hazard. In addition, although there is no domestic legislation to prohibit the release of a large number of helium-filled balloons during festivals, please abide by the following principles:
1) Do not use metal wires for the binding wires of helium-filled rubber balloons, for the same reasons as above.
2) For helium-filled rubber balloons, one ball should be tied to a heavy object, and a large number of balloons should not be tied to the same heavy object. Because the balloon will not disperse once it flies away, it is easy to hang on the wire, or the wire will wrap around the animal after falling and cause injury.
Therefore, as long as the above precautions are followed, the balloon is very safe.
