Specialty Talalay from Talalay Global - Limited Production 100% Natural Talalay Latex
At FoamSource, with over 30 years of working with latex under our belt, we consider the "Specialty Talalay," a very limited amount of 100% natural Talalay latex produced by Talalay Global, to be the world's finest latex.
The Talalay process takes four times longer than Dunlop with two additional process steps—vacuum and flash freezing—which improve the consistency, quality and feel of the finished latex, also creating a product that is more breathable than Dunlop latex.
A natural material formed into the worlds finest sleeping surface...
100% natural latex combines the best material with advanced technology to produce a sublime sleeping surface, with unparalleled comfort and durability, free from fire retardants and any other toxic chemicals.
Natural latex maintains the natural defenses of of the rubber tree, creating a hypoallergenic, antimicrobial sleeping surface, that resists mold, mildew, bed bug and dust mites. Properties that simply cannot be found in any other type of foam.
Flash freezing and five stage washing are unique to the Talalay process...
Flash freezing gives Talalay its consistent feel. 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, and side to side.
Talalay Global pays particular attention to carefully washing the finished latex. The latex mattress core is removed from the mold and placed on a conveyer belt that brings it through a five-stage fresh water washer, which removes latex proteins, residual soaps and curing agents.
Lets talk about comfort, durability and the perfect individual firmness...
Quality foam mattresses are more durable and comfortable than inner-spring mattresses. Natural latex foam is the most comfortable and durable of all foams by a substantial margin, typically out lasting other high quality foams by two to one.
The ideal supportive feel in your mattress is an individual choice. Natural latex mattresses are easily adjusted for firmness, including a different firmness on each side for couples. This begins with the mattress core, and a 6" natural latex core is the finest support layer available.
Layering natural latex aligns your spine, while relieving pressure points...
On top of a latex supporting core, the real magic begins with the top comfort layers. Comfort layers are generally softer, designed to conform to your body shape, weight and sleeping position, while relieving pressure points at the shoulders and hips.
When it comes to a natural latex mattress, "it's all about the latex." At FoamSource, our flagship natural latex mattress line, the Nu-Lex, uses only the Specialty 100% natural Talalay latex, provided by Talalay Global (formerly Latex International), a prized vendor for more than two decades.
