Since 1938, in Barranquilla, a coastal seaport on the Caribbean Sea, the manufacture of high-quality balloons began in Colombia at the initiative of Emil Loewy, a native of Austria. Over the years, this initiative took shape until it became Sempertex SA, the world leader in latex balloons for decoration and entertainment.
Our privileged geographical position allows us to import the best materials available in the world market, add value and thus deliver the best latex balloons under a single promise: Quality, Price & Service.
We generate happiness to the world bringing inspiration and innovation to each celebration

The tests were carried out under the International Standard, EN71-1, EN 71-2, EN 71-3. Additionally, we comply with EN 71-9, EN 71-12 standards. These tests analyze MECHANICAL AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES, FLAMMABILITY, MIGRATION OF PHYSICAL ELEMENTS, FREE OF NITROSAMINE AND HEAVY METAL CONTENT.
These tests are carried out by SGS Institut Fresenius, a demanding and world-renowned German laboratory, whose objective is the reliable application of high-level normalized standards for quality and safety. In Colombia, they are carried out by SGS Colombia under the CRS15125 certificate.

Our balloons do not have fillers and/or plasticizing elements, which reduce manufacturing cost by acting as fillers, reducing latex content, and potentially increasing biodegradation times. Like Sempertex balloons, the inks we use to manufacture printed balloons are made from a mixture of harmless and non-toxic substances, which makes them safe to use.
