Why was Balloon Glow No Buff Shine & Protectant, sometimes refer red to as “Balloon Glow Original,” developed?
Why is Balloon Glow advertised as a "professional-grade" balloon maintenance product?
When Balloon Glow Original entered the market in 2012 it was the first balloon polish for professional balloon decorators that didn’t
require buffing. After 10 years of sales, and hundreds of satisfied customers, we still consider Balloon Glow to be the best balloon
polish for the discriminating professional balloon decorator. To be considered professional-grade, Balloon Glow continues to meet
these important quality specifications: 1. Quick and easy to apply, requiring absolutely no buffing. 2. Provides an instant and
permanent protective shine. 3. Economical to use: low cost per ounce, and available in bulk quantities.
Why was Balloon Glow Pro Water-based No Buff Polish developed?
On the advice of customers and distributors wanting a no buff, consumer version of the product, a water-based formula was developed in 2020. Balloon Glow Pro delivers the same great results as its predecessor and is for users who are at least 12 years of age who decorate with latex balloons for birthday parties, and seasonal balloon decorating projects in the home. It can also be used on balloon bouquets and other displays with latex balloons.
How is Balloon Glow Pro different from Balloon Glow Original?
Balloon Glow Pro has a green, water-based formula that becomes clear after it is sprayed on. Balloons reach their full shine and color intensity after about 20 minutes of application. Both polishes deliver a permanent, protective shine to latex balloons and require no buffing.
Can professional balloon decorators use Balloon Glow Pro?
Yes. Balloon Glow Pro can be used for professional decorating projects and will yield the same great results as Balloon Glow.
