Mattress Dealzz uses Talalay Latex in several of our products as both a support element and as a comfort component.

In the mattress industry, Latex is considered one of the most durable components available.  Unparalleled strength and resilience, immediate spring-back for the best body-contouring support, a cool sleep environment, and long-lasting construction.

Natural latex is obtained by harvesting the botanical liquid from rubber trees, usually grown for large-scale production on sustainable rubber tree estates.  The techniques that are used to produce the airy, resilient mattress structure out of this thin and unassuming liquid have been around since the turn of the 20th century.

Talalay latex is the culmination of a century of effort to build luxury foam out of latex’s natural botanical properties of buoyance and resilience.  Talalay can be relatively soft or firm, depending on your sleep preference, and tends to have a downy loft that side sleepers covet.

The production of Talalay latex is more labor-intensive than the older Dunlop method of manufacturing.

Talalay is formed in a laboratory, where liquid latex is first whipped, then poured into a mold.

In Talalay production, the latex is subjected to vacuum molding and flash freezing.  The flash-freezing process, combined with the added air, avoids the particulate separation that sometimes occurs in the production of Dunlop latex, where the foam is allowed to dry slowly in layers causing the product to vary on firmness and consistency throughout the thickness of the core.

Talalay is thus more uniformly distributed evenly at a molecular level creating a round durable cell structure in contrast to egg shaped cell structure that can collapse or lose its strength over time.  Talalay also tends to be more breathable and better balanced than pure Dunlop mattresses.

ILD or Indentation Load Deflection is a measure of latex firmness that can be applied uniformly to Dunlop or Talalay mattresses.  Talalay is usually touted as suppler than Dunlop.  The best way to describe the difference between Talalay and Dunlop is:  Talalay is much like angel food cake, while Dunlop is more like pound cake.  Generally speaking, Talalay can be a better choice when used as a sleep surface material while Dunlop can be a great option when used in the core of a mattress because of its dense properties and lower costs.

The bottom line is that both Dunlop and Talalay, are wonderful options in any mattress design depending on the placement and the design intent.  They both have their place in the mattress industry and are a great choice when choosing your next mattress.  Visit one of our stores and find out why Latex might be right for you.
