Our Blimps Versus the Competition
So what defines a quality blimp and a not-so-great one? First of all, it depends on the type of material used. We use 3.5 mil thick polyurethane which has excellent expansion qualities and helium retention. The other commonly used material for advertising
blimps is PVC, which is thicker than polyurethane but does not have the
helium retention ability that polyurethane has. The cost of helium is
going up and this factor should be taken into account if you plan to
purchase a PVC blimp. The PVC blimp will cost more in the long run due to its inability to retain helium.
We also did some field testing of polyurethane's durability upon expansion and found that we were able to over-inflate one of our blimps to almost 4 times its size before we caused a minor rupture. That wasn't even a full blowout. You do the math on a 12 foot blimp. In other words, we don't worry about you busting our blimp wide open by over-inflating it. But holes and tears do happen, so if the blimp contacts sharp objects, we always send along patch kits with your order.
You can also add a nylon skin to make your blimp more UV resistant and durable. All of our heavy lift blimps have polyurethane bladders and ripstop nylon skins.
