like rubber, latex, nylon, polychloroprene etc. As per the material used,

Rubber Balloon History
Rubber balloon was first invented by
Michael Faraday in 1824. He called it "caoutchoucs" and used it
for his hydrogen experiments. Its interesting how he made the first balloon
using two rubber sheets and attaching them by pressing the edges together.
The sticky rubber got welded automatically and the rest of the surface was
prevented from sticking by applying a layer of flour over it.

Rubber Balloon Safety Concerns
Rubber balloons are not as harmful

its elasticity for a longer period of time when exposed to sea water rather
than the air.
