Inflating Your Advertising Balloon or Advertising Blimp in Cold Weather.
In cold weather you must inflate the balloon/blimp very slowly to allow the material time to stretch.
When it is below freezing the final inflation should be complete in stages.
- Fill the balloon about 3/4 full.
- Wait about 15 seconds before adding more helium.
- Fill for another few seconds until the tape is beginning to flatten.
- Fill for another few seconds until the tape is smooth against the balloon.
We fly the balloons in cold weather without seeing any adverse effects.
Of course, snow or rain freezing on the balloon will cause the balloon or blimp to perform poorly.
