How Organic Latex Luxury mattresses are made
There are two different methods that can be used in the production of natural luxury latex mattresses and organic luxury latex mattresses. The original, more established process (dating back over 75 years) is known as the Dunlop method. The newer, more involved process is known as the Talalay method.
In the Dunlop method, liquid latex taken from the sap of rubber trees is “whipped” with air until it becomes wet foam. Then it is poured into a mold, hardened, and vulcanized.
In the Talalay process, the wet latex foam is also poured into a mold with extra room left at the top of the mold. The mold is then sealed; air is vacuumed out of the mold, which causes the foam to expand to fill the empty space inside the mold. The mold is put through a freezing process and quickly vulcanized, locking in the expanded structure of the foam.
Generally, natural and or organic luxury latex mattresses have only one piece of latex. At Dormio our natural luxury mattresses and organic luxury mattresses consist of anywhere from two to eight pieces of natural latex or organic latex. The core of the luxury mattress, which provides the underlying support, tends to be about 6″ thick and is typically made from relatively dense latex. On top of that are the “comfort” layers which are designed to give the bed a softer feel and to relieve pressure points and typically are made from softer natural latex or organic latex.
