A latex mattress is the best sleeping accessory for athletes, newlywed couples, babies, young people, and adults. If you want to know how is latex made, the answer is simple. Latex is derived from the milky sap of rubber trees which are mainly found in South East Asia. It usually looks like a milky white liquid and has a natural springiness to it.
Wondering how is a latex mattress actually made? Latex undergoes various processing techniques according to the requirement of the level of firmness of the mattress. The first step is, of course, the collection of latex from the rubber tree.
First and foremost, latex is produced from the Hevea Brasiliensis (rubber tree) by tapping the tree so that the sap can flow out and get collected. The tree is tapped by making a thin cut, diagonally. The sap fluid flows continuously for only about six hours. Later, the tree is tapped again to collect more fluid. As the sap oozes out, it is collected in a vessel or bucket.
Did you know that collecting the latex sap from the rubber tree does not destroy the tree in any way? It neither creates any sort of pollution or damage to nature. Instead, it helps in removing tons of carbon dioxide content from the air. The reason for this is because the rubber tree consumes a large amount of carbon dioxide over a period of one year to produce latex.
After the collection, latex begins to coagulate when it is exposed to direct sunlight. Hence, it is prone to get hardened. So, the collection is usually done at night or early in the morning so that hardening is avoided and the processing is done within 24 hours. Once collected, the latex is immediately transferred into large airtight buckets.
We are going to refer to the conversion of latex into a giant comfortable latex mattress as “processing”. Processing can be done in various ways; hence there is not just one perfect method to do so. Basically, the key is to mix latex with a little amount of other materials to help it get solidified.
The two most common methods of processing latex to make a latex mattress are:
The Dunlop method is known to be a much simpler process as compared to the Talalay method.
Pros of Dunlop Method:
Cons of Dunlop Method:
In the Talalay Method, the texture of latex in a latex mattress is slightly different.
Pros of Talalay Method:
Cons of Talalay Method:
We prefer the Dunlop method while creating a large sized latex mattress, exclusively for you. This is because if we use the Talalay Method, we would have to produce smaller blocks of latex mattresses and glue them together. According to us, this technique doesn’t do complete justice with our customers. Hence, for babies, we prefer the Talalay Method and for adults, Dunlop Method is our only choice.
Once our high-quality mattresses are produced, we check them for quality. Each latex mattress at Morning Owl undergoes quality inspection. After that, we give grades to each latex mattress according to the quality and other important factors. We reserve the best latex mattress for you by stitching them individually and trimming them carefully to obtain a sharply defined outline.
