The compact Foil-Flator is the only electric air inflator/deflator for foil balloons. The precise inflation pressure prevents both over-inflation breakage and damage to self-sealing balloon valves during inflation, ensuring long-lasting displays. The deflator hose deflates both helium and air-filled foil balloons, so they can be reused for repeated savings. 120V, 230V and 240V versions available.
Inflating foil balloons with air rather than helium saves money, and since air does not escape from the foil material as easily, displays can last for a very long time. For superior results, we recommend covering inflated foil balloon valves with Jiffy Tape.

Move the coiled hose to the top of the machine and attach the long "straw" nozzle. Carefully insert the straw past the end of the self-sealing valve, then turn on the machine to suck out the gas (air or helium). When the balloon is deflated, turn off the machine. Separate the straw from the nozzle before removing the straw from the balloon. Download a PDF copy of the full Foil-Flator instructions to learn more. (Requires the free Adobe Reader to open.)
