HI-FLOAT®  is a product that we certainly take for granted and no professional balloon company could be without it. But how many of us know how it was invented?

It all started in 1982, when Marjorie Burchette opened a small balloon delivery shop in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. In a short time, Marjorie realized that her customers were disappointed that the latex balloons inflated with helium floated just one day. She was sure her husband Don, a chemical engineer, could solve the problem. And so it was, Don got to work on the problem and after about a year, he developed HI-FLOAT ®.

Since then, HI-FLOAT® has become a successful product and an essential tool for all professionals in the world of the globe. But … besides using HI-FLOAT® to extend the flotation times of your latex balloons, do you know that you can do much more with Hi-Float?

In OnArt ‘ 2018 we will be fortunate to have the presence of Keith Burchette, one of the present co-owners, of HI-FLOAT ®, who will explain and demonstrate in a practical way everything we can do with the product.

Who better than him could do it?
