LATEX FOAM MATTRESSES ARE DEFINED AS: ANY OF SEVERAL NATURAL OR SYNTHETIC COLLOIDAL POLYMERS SUSPENDED IN AN AQUEOUS SOLUTION.

Basically: rubber particles in water

WHAT IS NATURAL LATEX WHOLE MATTRESSES?

Natural Latex is a milky substance harvested from rubber tree plants (Havea brasiliensis) which are grown in tropical climate plantations around the world. Most are located in Africa, Malaysia, South America, and Indonesia. Natural Latex is bio-degradable and naturally resistant to mold, mildew & bacteria.  Harvesting the liquid latex foam whole mattresses is similar to tapping trees for maple syrup. The trees are not harmed, providing a sustainable resource. The latex is collected in buckets and shipped to large rubber factories such as B.F Goodrich, Dupont, etc. for processing. Natural liquid latex is a commodity that’s publicly traded in stock markets around the world similar to corn, pork bellies, orange juice etc.

WHAT IS SYNTHETIC LATEX?

Synthetic latex is a man-made molecular copy of natural latex. The scientific name for this compound is Styrene-Butadiene (SBR).

Styrene is named for “styrax”, the resin from a Turkish tree. Low levels of styrene occur naturally in many kinds of plants as well as a variety of foods such as fruits, vegetables & nuts.

Butadiene is produced by dehydration of butane obtained from petroleum. Butadiene is also used in the manufacture of latex paints and nylon fibers used in rope and clothing.



WHAT ARE BLENDED LATEX FOAM MATTRESSES ?

Blended latex is just what it sounds like, a combination of Natural latex and Synthetic latex mixed together.

WHICH LATEX MATTRESS IS BEST FOR ME?

This is a question that’s answer can depend on your perspective. All latex formulas offer numerous benefits to consumers that far outweigh the benefits of conventional foam bedding materials. Keep in mind that while latex formulations are contrasted with each other below, all latex rubber significantly outperforms foams such as memory foam or traditional polyurethane foam for durability, pressure relief and sleep benefits.

NATURAL LATEX

Natural wholelatex, as its name implies, is “natural” which offers many benefits for use in sleep products. Consumers that have an organic lifestyle and have made numerous changes to remove most synthetic chemicals from their household tend to purchase 100% natural formulations. The elasticity, healthiness, and ability of Natural Latex to conform to your body, reducing pressure on your muscles and circulation is unsurpassed. The resulting benefits and luxurious comfort simply can’t be matched by synthetic latex. However, because it is a “natural” product there are inconsistencies at the molecular level which cause Natural Latex products to wear at a faster rate than Synthetic Latex.

SYNTHETIC LATEX

Synthetic Latex is extremely uniform at the molecular level, so sleep products will have greater durability than those made solely with Natural Latex. However, what you gain in durability you lose in feel and sleep benefits as compared to Natural Latex.

CLASSIC BLENDED LATEX MATTRESSES: 100% PURE TALALAY LATEX

When consumers want to know a product is natural and good for the environment while also looking for a product that will help them sleep better with optimum value for their money- they purchase blended latex. By combining Natural Latex and Synthetic Latex together you get the best of both worlds. Natural components, elasticity, conformity, health benefits and luxurious feel from Natural Latex combine with extended durability from Synthetic Latex- to make a product that the Earth provided and we perfected.

Blended latex can be compared to a gold wedding band. No one has a 24 karat (100% gold) wedding band because it would be too soft and bend if gripped too hard. The solution is an 18 karat gold ring where the gold is mixed with another, more durable metal. The result is a ring that has the look and feel of pure gold but is less vulnerable to damage or wear.

How Whole Latex is Made

MAKING LATEX – MANUFACTURING PROCESSES

Whole Latex Manufacturing Processes

The terms “Talalay” and “Dunlop” refer to the two different methods of manufacturing Latex Rubber for sleep products. The Dunlop process was developed in 1929. It was the first method used to produce latex material for bedding.

As technology progressed, the Talalay process was developed by the Talalay family during World War II. The Talalay process for producing latex is significantly more complex and costly, resulting in softer, more buoyant and luxurious finished products.

MAKING LATEX - LATEX FORMULAS

Both Talalay and Dunlop processes start with a formula mixture of liquid latex. These formulas can be any of the following:

100% natural latex rubber (harvested from rubber tree plants) 
100% synthetic latex rubber (a man-made molecular copy of natural latex rubber)
Blended natural & synthetic latex rubbers (specific blend ratios are proprietary)

Note: there are small amounts of other materials required for processing liquid latex into solid form which are necessary for all latex production. (ingredients & amounts are proprietary)

WholeLatex Talalay is produced using only 100% Natural or Blended formulations to meet optimum quality standards.


Whole Latex Processes

TALALAY

1. Liquid latex formulation is poured into a mold and sealed closed
2. Vacuum is created to disperse liquid latex throughout mold
3. Liquid latex is flash frozen 
4. Frozen latex is flash heated to “gel” into permanent solid form
5. Cooled solid latex is removed from mold

DUNLOP

1. Liquid latex formulation is poured onto a long conveyor belt
2. Liquid latex is slowly heated to “gel” into permanent solid form
3. Cooled solid latex is removed from conveyor belt




THE DIFFERENCE IN PROCESSING ARE THE TWO ADDITIONAL STEPS THAT OCCUR WITH TALALAY PROCESS - #2 VACUUM & #3 FREEZE .

#2 Vacuum – This allows any amount of latex to be evenly distributed throughout the mold creating precise and varied firmness with the finished latex. The more liquid latex that’s poured into the mold the firmer the resulting solid latex. Therefore, if less liquid latex is used, a softer more supple piece of latex results.

This differs from Dunlop in that Dunlop process has very little ability to vary the firmness or feel of the finished solid product while maintaining its structural integrity. The liquid formula is poured onto a belt and you get the same, dense piece of latex every time. The only way to soften the feel of Dunlop latex is to add “fillers” into the liquid latex formula which result in solid latex that is flaky and breaks down quickly.

#3 Flash Freeze – This provides Talalay with its uniquely consistent characteristic. Liquid latex is a suspension of rubber particles in water, like a shaken snow globe. Flash freezing prevents the latex particles from settling to the bottom while gelling into a solid product. This means that the resulting piece of solid Talalay latex has the same consistent feel from top to bottom.

This differs from Dunlop because Dunlop process does not utilize a freeze step. Therefore, the rubber particles settle to the bottom while the liquid latex is gelling into a solid form, like a snow globe, resulting in a variation of feel from top to bottom. This is not recognizable if the Dunlop latex is used as a bottom layer of a mattress but can cause problems if Dunlop pieces are used for pillows or as top layers of a mattress.

CONCLUSION - The Talalay process takes four times looonger than Dunlop with two additional process steps that improve the consistency, quality and feel of the finished latex.

A simple analogy: Talalay latex is like a chocolate soufflé; although the process is long, your end product is a buoyant, airy, complex delight. Dunlop latex is more like a tray of brownies; tasty, but dense and flat in comparison.

CRAFTING EXCELLENCE

WHAT MAKES WHOLELATEX TALALAY LATEX FOAM MATTRESSES SO SPECIAL?

The commitment to perfection: From the selection and mixing of raw materials to final product testing and assembly, our entire manufacturing facility utilizes the latest technology to create the most supple, resilient and comfortable Talalay Latex sleep products in the world.

But of course, all this technology won’t get you anywhere without smart, talented professionals to bring all the elements together assuring great finished products are delivered to your home every time.

Whole Talalay latex is the premier material in bedding, LI Talalay delivers a unique buoyant quality which relaxes muscles and relieves tension, lifting away the pressures of the day while you sleep. Careful attention to detail at every step makes certain this amazing feel comes through in the finished product.

To help understand what makes our Talalay Latex so exceptional, think of an artisan chef creating a light and airy chocolate soufflé!

Start with the best ingredients - We utilize only the highest quality natural and synthetic latex and never introduce fillers that can degrade the feel and durability of our products. Unlike other latex manufacturers, Latex International filters the liquid latex to remove any large particles that might affect the consistency and durability of our end products. It you think of Talalay latex like a soufflé, it’s pretty clear that using powdered eggs isn’t going to suffice- you need real, farm fresh eggs!

Use the best recipe – Next, we mix our premium ingredients into a liquid latex foam formula or “batter”. Creating different formulas of liquid latex “batter”, we meet specific customer requests for 100% natural or more commonly used blended natural/synthetic latex recipes. Think dark chocolate vs, milk chocolate- it’s a matter of personal taste and desired product attributes.

Measure Carefully- As any great baker knows, if you don’t measure correctly the soufflé will fail. Our advanced, state of the art automated systems control both the mix of the batter and the precise amount poured into each mold to attain specific results every time.

Test for Perfection - Once the process is complete, every mattress core is robotically tested in 9 areas to assure a consistent feel from head to toe. Each pillow is individually weighed and hand inspected.

Share the Results - Even the best ingredients and the finest materials can be used poorly. To assure great finished products, we follow through by sharing knowledge with our retail and manufacturing partners. Together, we design and deliver finished pillows, mattress toppers and mattresses that bring the uplifting benefits of Talalay Latex to the surface.

Whole Talalay Latex provides 33% more Pressure Relief than leading Memory foam.

Pressure mapping tests the amount of pressure your body registers on a selected surface. This technology is widely used throughout the bedding industry to determine the quantity of pressure that a mattress or pillow creates on your body.

Pressure from your mattress and/or pillow prevents your muscles from relaxing which makes it difficult to fall asleep and impairs circulation causing you to toss & turn which makes it difficult to stay asleep.

Therefore, the less pressure your mattress and pillow produce on your body the easier it is to fall asleep and the more complete sleep you achieve throughout the night which leads to more energetic and productive days.
