2. The difference between shape, color and pattern

Because the production method is not used, the balloon shape, color and pattern of the two materials is different.

3.The difference between floating time

Balloons can be floated as long as they are filled with gas that is less dense than air, but the length of the flight time of balloons of different materials are different.

If the balloon mouth does not If it is tightened, it will be easier to cause air leakage.

5. Environmental pollution

The material of the aluminum foil balloon is not degradable, so if it falls on the ground, it will be a kind of pollution, while the latex balloon is different.
