Latex vs Memory Foam
MOST PEOPLE HAVE HEARD OF AND/OR SEEN ADVERTISING FOR MEMORY FOAM MATTRESSES BUT YOU MAY NOT BE AS FAMILIAR WITH LATEX INTERNATIONAL’S TALALAY LATEX. HERE’S WHY…
Of the top four
mattress companies in the US, one spends more on annual advertising than the other three combined. This company makes only Memory Foam beds. They spend tens of millions every year advertising Memory
Foam to consumers. To counter this, the remaining top three US mattress companies (who make metal coil mattresses) also make Memory Foam beds and advertise theirs to stay competitive.
Hence, the circle of
abundant advertising for Memory Foam.
Due to this
advertising, many people assume that all non-coil beds are made with Memory Foam or that Latex and Memory Foam are the same thing. This couldn’t be farther from the truth.
In fact, the two
materials are actually polar opposites and the sleeping experience could not be more different! Latex International Talalay Latex actually outperforms Memory Foam in every way.
OUR TALALAY LATEX DOESN’T SLEEP HOT
Sleeping hot is the #1
complaint from Memory Foam owners. This is because Memory Foam requires body heat to collapse the Foam cell structure in order to conform to your curves, the collapsing of these cells restricts air
flow trapping body heat and radiating it back at you.
Talalay Latex is 7x more breathable than memory foam. The rubber cell structure doesn’t collapse. Its natural resistance lifts your body preventing collapse and allows air to flow through, creating
an escape path for body heat.
You won’t have to
continuously flip your Latex International Talalay Latex pillow or search for a cooler spot on your LI Talalay Latex bed.
LATEX INTERNATIONAL TALALAY LATEX IS MULTI-DIMENSIONAL (33% MORE RELIEF)
Our Talalay Latex is a
two-dimensional material; it’s simultaneously supportive and pressure relieving, where memory foam is a one-dimensional- pressure reliever only.
Your body sinks into
and through Memory Foam until you hit a separate support layer below. Memory Foam simply can’t accomplish both pressure relief and support on its own. Hitting the support layer below Memory Foam
increases pressure on your body.
Talalay Latex is different and testing proves it.
Our Talalay Latex
provides 33% more pressure relief while simultaneously creating support because of the buoyant nature of latex. Latex International's Talalay Latex material accomplishes both functions (pressure
relief & support) on its own so you don’t bottom out on hard layers below.
Our Talalay Latex is
the best pressure relieving material used in bedding today. It provides the ultimate in pressure relief so your muscles relax to fall asleep quickly and your circulation can flow to stay asleep
UNDERSTANDING ELASTIC HYSTERESIS
OUR TALALAY LATEX PROVIDES BOUYANT LUXURY
Memory Foam, even so
called “soft” memory foam has a hard dense feel that is unappealing to many. Some call it “getting stuck in the mud” because after a few minutes your body heat collapses the cells and you sink into a
hole molded to your body. It soon becomes very difficult to move or get out of bed, you become trapped in a temporary crater.
Talalay Latex contains naturally based rubber material that gently lifts your body for a light & bouyant experience. Our Talalay Latex instantly conforms and moves with your body, providing
postural support and exceptional muscle relief no matter what sleeping position you maintain.
Talalay Latex is like floating- truly luxurious.
OUR TALALAY LATEX IS HEALTHIER
Our Talalay Latex uses
naturally derived material harvested from rubber trees that create an inherently hypoallergenic, dust-mite resistant, mold & mildew proof sleeping environment, making it ideal for allergy
sufferers or anyone wanting a cleaner bed. In addition our Talalay Latex doesn’t off gas harmful compounds that may be present in Memory Foam.
OUR TALALAY LATEX LASTS LONGER
Cornell Indentation testing proves Latex International Talalay Latex is 20x more durable than leading Memory Foam. While leading Memory Foam tears apart during this industry standard ASTM quality
test, our Talalay Latex passes with flying colors.
