36” Qualatex silver “foil” balloon - used for “pico” SuperPressure flights.

These balloons have an approximate weight of 37g and a approximate internal volume of 0.1cu m before envelope stretching. This means they can lift payloads of approx. 60g (or slightly more if you allow for stretching). However experimenters typically aim for payloads of the order of 10 - 20g per balloon in order to attempt to make them float (no guarantee of that is offered).

The material thickness is approximately 30 microns.

Silver balloons are used to minimize the thermal gain effects.

Note: The manufacturer marks these balloons as not for outdoor release.

Brand New, Qualatex 36” silver foil balloon - being used for picoHABing super pressure experimental test flights (see picture and information below left).

Full feature burst estimator can be found here:-  http://habhub.org/calc/ http://habhub.org/calc/http://habhub.org/calc/shapeimage_34_link_0
The data for balloons with a * designator has been back calculated from burst altitude rather than the burst diameter quoted by the manufacturer.
Disclaimer  The above calculator is for guidance only - balloon burst altitudes vary from balloon to balloon. No responsibility for accuracy is taken by Random Engineering Ltd.
This model tends to under estimate balloon burst altitude for small balloons by up to 3.5% - and over estimate for big balloons by up to 3.5%
