Did you know...
- Latex is collected by cutting the tree's bark, then catching the latex in a cup.
- In the late 1970's, silver metallised balloons were developed for the New York City Ballet. These balloons are commonly called mylar, but they are actually made from a metallised nylon and are more expensive than latex balloons.
- Latex balloons are Earth-friendly!
- There are basically two types of balloons, foil balloons and latex balloons. The foil balloons (often referred to as Mylar), are a bladder made of nylon that is covered with a layer of aluminum that is 0.0015 of an inch thick. Latex balloons are made from the sap of rubber trees - a completely natural substance.
- Latex balloons come from rubber trees.
- Rubber trees grow in rain forests.
- Latex harvesting discourages deforestation because latex-producing trees are left intact.
- A scientific survey carried out in 1989 revealed that on release a balloon will float up to a height of approximately 5 miles and then it becomes brittle and shatters into miniscule pieces falling back to earth at a rate of circa one piece every 5 square miles. Problems can arise when a balloon is not inflated properly or fully or is carrying too much weight and therefore does not reach the height at which shattering occurs. This situation causes a potential danger to wildlife and the environment.
- A tree can produce latex for up to 40 years!
- Balloons were invented in 1824, the same year as the electromagnet.
- Helium-filled balloons float because helium is lighter than nitrogen and oxygen, the two components of air.
