Cameron Balloons – Around The World Attempt
This enormous 10 story balloon made by the worlds leading balloon manufacturer, Cameron Balloons, is made using SFTV. This is our Reflective Thermal VCL used in thousands of homes and building projects all over the UK and EU, it was chosen for this successful round the world record attempt for its incredible strength and reflective properties. This was needed to withstand the extreme temperatures, altitudes and wind speed in excess of 200 kph the balloon was subjected to.
Finding a product that would be strong and durable enough to survive the extreme weather conditions
HOW WE HELPED...
SFTV 2m is our laminate flooring membrane and was used by Cameron Balloons where extra thermal performance was required. This one balloon consumed the equivalent of the amount of VCL used in 150 starter homes.
SFTV is extensively used in the SuperFOIL range including SF60 the world’s highest performance Multi-layer foil.
SuperFOIL’s un-matched performance was recognised as essential to the success of this new world record!
In the history of aviation, only three balloons have ever completed this round-the-world flight successfully, all have been built by Cameron Balloons, Bristol, UK.
