What is Latex?

Latex is a milky white liquid composed of rubber particles dispersed in water. This material is whipped with air to form a foam, which is heated to produce foam rubber, or latex. The soft, supple products of a real foam rubber are what make our products superior. Latex is inherently hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial and dust-mite resistant.  Because it breathes to remove body moisture, it keeps you warmer in the winter, and cooler in the summer.  Latex is not a plastic foam, like polyurethane or furniture foam. It is a denser product made of rubber to last a lifetime. The open cell structure of Talalay latex provides excellent air circulation.

What is Talalay Latex?

The Talalay method produces the finest latex available. The Talalay process steps:

  1. Liquid rubber whipped into a foam. Poured into a mold.

  2. Vita Talalay
  3. When closed the mold has rods that go through the foamed rubber.
  4. A vacuum is placed on the mold, which removes air bubbles/pockets and distributes the liquid rubber evenly through the mold.
  5. CO2 is run through the rods, freezing the foamed rubber and locking in the consistency.
  6. Heat sent through the rods, providing even temperature and yielding a consistent latex cores without air pockets or uneven firmnesses.
  7. After the mattress core is taken from the mold, it goes through a 5-stage fresh water washing to insure the cleanest, residue-free latex possible.
  8. Impact test results indicate an amazingly low loss of 2-8%.
