LATEX PEDIC MATTRESS
Latex Pedic Mattress is a milky white liquid which is extracted from the Hevea-Brasilienis tree, better known as the rubber tree. Rubber trees are native to South America and were spread around the world in the 19th century because of their great value. The latex used in our products is harvested mainly in Sri Lanka. Rubber trees have thrived in Sri Lanka since their introduction to the island. This has led to the development of a large natural rubber products industry which has grown around the vast supply of natural latex on the island.
Rubber trees are tapped through a method that is very similar to maple trees being tapped for their maple syrup! A small piece of the bark is carved away, and latex quickly begins flowing from that cut and into containers below.
Rubber trees must be grown for several years before they will yield latex. Each tree can be used for up to twenty years. The cuts in the tree are periodically changed to maximize yield. After the latex is collected from the rubber trees, it is thickened (by removing excess water) and shipped to factories for use.
100% natural latex foam has a supportive and springy feel. High quality natural latex foam such as our Pure Green latex foam is extremely durable and will last longer than any other type of mattress component. While it does have an odor, natural latex foam usually has a much milder and less abrasive odor than that of synthetic latex. Most true 100% natural latex foam will meet the most stringent textile and furniture emissions standards such as eco Institut, Oeko-Tex, and Greenguard.
The only drawback of natural latex foam is that it is not always as aesthetically perfect as synthetic latex foam. Small air pockets and aesthetic inconsistencies can be present on the finished foam. While these inconsistencies usually do not impact the performance of the foam in any way, Sleep On Latex committed to producing the best looking natural latex foam available in the world. Our Pure Green natural latex foam is produced to conform with several aesthetic quality standards
Natural latex mattresses and pillows are made of natural latex with high-tech methods. At present, there is two producing process in the world. Talalay and don op. Talalay process which was composed of mix, pour, vacuum, freeze, heat, wash and dry Dunlop process was made up of mix, foam, pour, heat, wash and dry.it manifested that Talalay process was physical foaming and during was chemical foaming, The major difference between the two process is that the freeze stage. The cost and the technic difficulty of Talalay process far out weight Dunlop process. In the talalay small amount of latex, compound is poured into the mold, air is extracted to perfectly distribute the foamed liquid inside the mold and to create a consistent round, open cell structure. The mattress core is flash frozen to lock the cell structure in place and to prevent the particles from setting. In Dunlop process, the molds are filled to the rim, air is not extracted, and there is no freeze stage. Therefore, the latex structure is less airy, so compared with Dunlop process, our Talalay latex product has several excellent properties, such as much better elastic, air permeability, long service life, against deformation and so on.
