What’s the History of Balloons?
In 1824, the very first latex balloon was born! To experiment with gases and their thresholds, a college professor named Michael Faraday fastened two sheets of rubber into an airtight pocket and filled them with various gases. Today, helium is most typically used to fill party balloons, but carbon dioxide is also widely used: it’s the air we exhale as we blow up balloons.
Although Faraday is credited with inventing the rubber balloon, balloons existed long before his billowing experiment. Animal bladders were the first balloons! Yes, bladders are what we’re talking about. The airtight and watertight organs were dried and utilized to store a variety of liquid gases, including water, whiskey, and wine. Although they were not our first pick for a ship, they served for hundreds of years.
Professor Faraday’s invention paved the path for wholesale latex balloon suppliers to mass-produce latex balloons. The first commercially available balloons were made at home by Thomas Hancock, an inventor, and manufacturer who sold a kit that contained liquid latex and a syringe for application. Crafty. That happened in 1825, just a year after Faraday’s infamous inflation. Balloons that didn’t require you to form themselves were commonly distributed in the United States at the turn of the century by the first actual wholesale balloon suppliers. In 1907, the first inflated latex balloons rolled off whatever latex balloons slid off of, and air-filled balloons were sold at gatherings soon after. Their popularity soared during the Roaring Twenties, and they’ve remained a mainstay of parties, celebrations, and lousy clowns ever since.
Latex is a natural liquid rubber that is used to make the balloons we are familiar with today. A sap-based latex is produced by the Rubber Tree, which provides the majority of the rubber used in all industry types. The latex is processed, molded, and colored into the balloons we love and know at production facilities. Balloons made from rubber tree latex are also environmentally friendly. Rubber trees are left alone to produce more latex, reducing deforestation in rainforests where Rubber Trees are native. In addition, a Rubber Tree can have latex for up to forty years!
