1) What is Natural Latex ?
Natural latex comes from the HeveaBrasiliensis rubber tree, discovered by South American Indians. The largest plantations of HeveaBrasiliensis are found in Asia (Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia). Natural Latex is bio-degradable and naturally resistant to mold, mildew & bacteria.
Natural latex, as its name implies, is “natural” which offers many benefits for use in sleep products. Consumers that have an organic lifestyle and have made numerous changes to remove most synthetic chemicals from their household tend to purchase 100% natural formulations. The elasticity, healthiness, and ability of Natural Latex to conform to your body, reducing pressure on your muscles and circulation is unsurpassed. The resulting benefits and luxurious comfort simply can’t be matched by synthetic latex.
Natural Latex is extremely uniform at the molecular level, so sleep products will have greater durability than those made solely with Synthetic Latex.
2) What is Synthetic latex ?
The development of the synthetic rubber industry started in the 1940s and accelerated considerably during the Second World War to compensate for the shortage of natural rubber. Synthetic latex is the product of two monomeric molecules – styrene and butadiene.However, because it is a “Copy-product” there are inconsistencies at the molecular level which cause Synthetic Latex products to wear at a faster rate than
3) What is the difference between latex and other materials used for mattress making ?
Latex provides better elasticity and superior comfort than any other material used in making mattresses. It is recognized for its softness to the touch and its excellent support, which enables the body to fully recover during the night.
4) What levels of firmness can one find in a latex mattress ?
With PATEX Latex the user has the choice of 2 levels of firmness: medium, firm. Even the firmest
blocks of PATEX provide an excellent flexibility.
5) What type of base can one use with a latex mattress ?
Latex mattresses can be used with various types of base (box-spring, slatted, etc.). In addition,
relaxation beds use latex mattresses for their unrivaled flexibility.
6) Can latex cause allergies ?
Our latex foam product is anti-bacterial: latex foam is a hostile environment for such organisms as
mites or ticks, which normally thrive in warm, moist conditions, and feed on the skin’s secretions.
7) Comparision ?
1) 100% Natural Latex mattress vs Memory Foam mattress.In fact, the two materials are actually
polar opposites and the sleeping experience could not be more different! 100% Natural Latex actually
outperforms Memory Foam in every way.
- OUR 100% NATURAL 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.
- 100% Natural Latex is 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.
- Our Laytex natural latex provides more pressure relief while simultaneously creating support because of the buoyant nature of latex. Laytex natural Latex material accomplishes both functions (pressure relief & support) on its own so you don’t bottom out on hard layers below
- Our Laytex 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 Laytex latex doesn’t off gas harmful compounds that may be present in Memory Foam.
- Our Laytex latex use lasts longer. Cornell Indentation testing proves Laytex latex is 10x more durable than Memory Foam. While Memory Foam tears apart during this industry standard LGA quality test, our Laytex latex passes with the most high score.
2) 100% Latex Foam Mattress VS. Spring mattress. While a spring mattress was the standard formany decade, Latex foam mattress are becoming more and more popular due to their unsurpassed comfort
and overall body support. While spring mattress can feel nice to sit or lay on, they will not offer anywhere close to the body contouring and therefore spinal support that latex foam can offer. It will actually cause a
trampoline effect and bend inward when pressure is applied without conforming to the specific bumps and
curves of the body. While latex foam can shrink overtime, Spring can bend and lose their shape over time. Therefore, an old latex foam mattress will likely feel better and offer better support than an old spring mattress.
3) 100% Latex foam mattress VS. Air mattress.
Air mattress have also become progressively more popular due to the interesting concept of being able tochange the feel of your mattress with a control. With many air mattress you can change both sides of the bed to different firmnesses. Unfortunately, an air mattress have many parts that can and often do break. For this reason you will find the fine print of warranties to contain less coverage. Also, you will not get the same contouring the body that you can get from Latex foam. In fact, It is more similar to Spring mattress in that it will cause a trampoline effect and bend inward when pressure is applied without conforming to the specific bumps and curves of the body. This is because air displace to the sides of the body, leaving the middle with less support.
