Latex Beds are completely reversible
We believe that Latex Mattresses should be made Completely Reversible; the
old fashioned way.
Although it is told that Latex Beds do not have to be reversed . . . we have
been around for almost 50 years, and believe your Latex Bed will always hold
up better and longer if you can completely reverse your mattress.
This is one reason your Latex Bed can have a 20-year warranty instead of
a 10-year warranty, which is the industry standard.
Our Latex Beds are completely reversible from head to foot and upside
down. This way "your rear-end" wears down in 4 different areas on your
Your Latex Bed should be reversed every two or three months.
We know many of our customer's never do it; or only do it every one or two
years, . . .but we take the time and expense to quilt both sides to make
your mattress completely reversible; and to be able to last 20 to 40 years,
instead of just 10. To us it is just a matter of old-fashioned
craftsmanship, and common sense.

Latex International has its FAB 5. These
are the 5 reasons why Talalay latex is a superior sleep product.
|Talalay latex is uplifting with bottomless
||A bottomless sleep surface keeps your pressure points from
settling on a hard/pressure-giving surface. Latex is always trying to lift.
The lack of pressure means increased blood flow.
||Reduced tossing and turning means a better/deeper sleep.
Latex is resilient rubber not inflexible plastic. The Talalay latex
cells are thick, round, consistent and flexible able to take the flexing
a body weight provides night after night.
LI Talalay latex is proven to be up to 3 times more durable than other types
of latex and polyurethane foam.
Increased Comfort Life of your mattress and better sleep over
a greater length of time.

Latex Beds Sustainability
Latex International is committed to helping preserve the environment.
Sustainability is a key component of our operations.
In ecology, the word sustainability means how biological systems remain diverse
and productive over time. Latex trees have a 25 year productive life
and they have a strong effect on the environment as they quickly absorb carbon
dioxide from the atmosphere and help reduce greenhouse emissions.
Natural resource conservation is also key to sustainability. Latex
International recycles the water it uses to purify our latex mattress and
pillow products. The company also uses energy efficient lighting
as well as power management and high efficiency production equipment to minimize
Post-production re-usability is also key to our eco-commitment. All
excess latex spindles that are punched out of our EverCloud quiltable latex
products are re-used to create pillows. All excess Talalay and EverCloud
latex that is cutoff during mattress fabrication is re-used as a support
layer in the carpet industry.
Mattress and Pillow Buyers Guide
Its a modern world, and that often means an overwhelming amount of
choices. Heres a quick guide to help you find your way to the mattress
and pillow thats right for you.
Matters of Support
Plush or firm? Latex, innerspring, memory foam, or air? The
right answer for you is deeply personal and comfort is always subjective.
For years, the rule-of-thumb was to get a firm mattress. However, body contours
are not flat no matter whether youre a back, side or stomach sleeper.
Many conventional firm beds leave unsupported gaps between your body and
the mattress. The body craves support when it needs rest and requires a sleep
surface that conforms to those contours yet feels good. The best mattresses
and pillows will keep your whole spine in alignment, from the tip of your
toes to the top of your head. Supporting without stiffness, cradling without
Back? Side? Stomach?
How you sleep is important: Side sleepers need firmer pillows
and support given a large space gap between the mattress and their ear and
shoulder blade. However, the same sleeper may need a plusher mattress to
support the hips and shoulders (and associated contours), which exert a lot
of pressure on the mattress which could lead to more pressure points.
If you sleep on your back, you may want to consider a medium firmness pillow
to avoid the spine from improperly bending. To prevent back pain, stomach
sleepers may need a lower profile or plusher pillow to ensure the neck and
spine are in alignment.
The key to selecting the right mattress for you is to not rush the process.
Spend a few minutes lying down on several types of mattresses in your favorite
sleep position. Pay attention to the position of your spine. Your body should
feel completely relaxed in about 2 minutes. Its uncomfortable to stay
on a bed in a store for 2-3 minutes but it is critical to better understand
the level of comfort and support the bed provides.
The conforming nature of latex foam alleviates high pressure points that
can cause tossing and turning at night, pain and stiffness the next morning.
Latex is hypoallergenic, contains anti-microbial properties, is dust-mite
resistant and breathable. So, it can keep you warmer in the winter and cooler
in the summer.
Whether you are looking for a guest room mattress or one that you will be
sleeping on every night for the next ten to fifteen years, purchase the best
mattress you can afford. Latex foam can be more expensive than conventional
innerspring mattresses because they are made of pure latex rubber simply
the best foam choice available today. But latex can last a lifetime so it
may actually be more cost effective in the long run.
Easy to Maintain
Because latex foam mattresses never need flipping or turning, they are better
for your back at night and during the day (as you dont have to lift
a 125+ pound mattress to keep its shape or to avoid body impressions). And
latex foam pillows never need fluffing!!

Consumer Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Questions about Latex Beds
1.What is the difference between Talalay latex and Dunlop process latex?
Latex International features the Talalay process: a highly controlled,
sophisticated latex manufacturing process that produces the highest quality,
most consistent latex available in the world. An alternative technology,
known as the Dunlop process, is the most commonly used production method
globally. It creates a firmer product that is most often used as a base core
The major difference between the two processes is what happens in the mold
just prior to the initial latex curing stage.
In the Talalay process, only a 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 settling.
In the Dunlop process, the molds are filled to the rim, air is not extracted,
and there is no freeze stage. Therefore, the latex cell structure is less
airy. Gravity takes over settling the particles to create a denser
product than Talalay latex. Talalay latex is available in a much wider firmness
range so it can provide enhanced comfort choice for consumers around the
2.Are all latex beds alike?
All foams are not created equal. To be assured you are buying the finest
in the world, ask for the only Talalay latex made in the U.S.A.
Talatech® in the brands mentioned on our retail link page. LIs
formulation and process controls help determine the level of consistency
and durability in a latex product. Our manufacturing process helps make the
most consistent and durable latex in the world.
Choice of Comfort: Our pillows come in different heights and firmnesses to
provide exceptional support and pressure relief for back, side or stomach
Ultra durable: consistent cell structure means our latex provides superior
comfort far longer than competitive products.
Proven Quality: we are the only manufacturer to test EVERY mattress core
in 9 locations to ensure product consistency. Every latex pillow is hand
inspected and weighed. Clean and Fresh: EVERY mattress core and pillow is
washed in a unique 5 stage washing process that removes residual soaps and
proteins (the leading cause of premature softening). World Leader:
Talatech® is the only Talalay latex made in the U.S.Athe finest
in the worldfor uniform product feel from top to bottom.
3.How are latex beds different from memory or viscoelastic foam?
Latex foam is proven to provide 31% more pressure relief and contouring support
than memory foam. And it responds instantly to your unique body
contourswithout waiting for body heat. Latex is made from a rubber-based
product versus memory or viscoelastic foam, which is derived from plastics.
Latex provides instantaneous recovery as it contours and supports
any body movement, while memory foam provides slow recovery.
With memory foam, the sleeper must wait for their body temperature to soften
the foam prior to getting that true contouring support that they would experience
immediately with latex.
XSENSOR® pressure tests prove our Talatech® latex provides up to
30% more pressure relief than visco-elastic foam and outperforms other latex
brands. Talatech® latex offers the superior support and pressure relief
consumers are looking for today. And latex instantly conforms to every curve
4. How does Talatech® compare to imported latex?
Latex International performs very stringent durability testing to compare
its latex to competitive materials. The following two tests illustrate our
superiority to imported Talalay, Dunlop process, and 100% natural latex.
Compression Set Test: This test simulates the effect of body impressions
on the latex after a person lies on the bed for extended periods of time.
Latex mattress samples are clamped to 50% of their original thickness for
22 hours at 158 ° F. When removed, the percent loss in thickness is
measured. Higher values indicate a higher propensity for the product to take
a body impression over time. LIs Talatech® latex consistently
outperforms imported latex.
Percent Loss of Core Thickness:
LI Talatech®: 3.3%
European Talalay latex: 5.7% (73% more loss than LI)
European Dunlop process latex: 7.5% (127% more loss than LI)
Asian 100% natural latex: 12.5% (279% more loss than LI)
This test is used to simulate the effect on the latex when a person continuously
gets on and off the bed over extended periods of time. A block of latex is
tested for ILD (firmness) and then placed in a testing machine where a weight
is dropped on the latex repeatedly for 24 hours. The product is then removed
from the machine and allowed to recover for 24 hours. ILD is again measured
and recorded. Higher loss values indicate a higher propensity for the material
to soften over time due to mechanical breakdown of the product. LI latex
consistently recovers better, with less loss.
Percent Loss of ILD:
L I Talatech® : 6%
European Talalay latex: 16% (167% more ILD loss than LI
European Dunlop process latex: 16% (167% more ILD loss than LI)
Asian 100% natural latex: 15% (150% more ILD loss than LI)
5. How can I find your products?
Our mattress components and pillows are featured in the leading name brands
at major sleep shops, department stores, furniture stores, bedding and home
textile retailers across the country and around the world. For more Retailer
6. Are latex allergies an issue in bedding products?
In the late 1990s, latex allergies became a topic of concern. Publicity
revolved around a very small portion of the public exposed to a protein found
in natural rubber latex that caused allergic reactions. The majority of these
cases involved health-care workers who came in frequent contact with medical
products made using a dipped vulcanization product, often produced in third
world countries that do not have the stringent GMP manufacturing codes employed
in the United States.
Although the process is completely different from ours, Latex International
takes action to prevent the potential for allergic reaction. Non-skin contact
products, such as mattresses and pillows, that may contain some natural rubber
latex, undergo a five stage washing process which removes reaction-causing
proteins while enhancing the over quality of the product. The openness of
Talalay latex foam cells, allows for thorough washing.
Complaints for allergic reactions to natural rubber latex are monitored by
the FDA. To our knowledge, there has never been a single complaint over our
more than 28 years of experience stemming from the natural rubber found in
our mattresses and pillows. Our products have been tested by outside facilities
and are shown to be inherently hypoallergenic for sufferers of mold, mildew
or bacterial allergies. In addition, our mattress and pillows are resistant
to dust mites and are naturally resistant to mold and mildew which are
contributors to asthma and pulmonary function allergies.

7. Can latex work with traditional innerspring mattresses?
Latex comfort layers can be found in many high quality innerspring mattresses.
Adding this extra layer of latex can improve the pressure relieving qualities
and durability of virtually any mattress. Many mattress retailers will have
mini-mattress cutaways that allow you to see exactly what is
inside the mattress.
8. Why is maintaining proper spinal alignment important?
Without proper support, your back, hips and shoulders are thrown out of alignment
and you may wake feeling stiff, achy and tired. Latex foam provides comfortable
support that keeps you in alignment, and conforms to your contours, cradling
your body all night so you can awaken refreshed.
9. Is tossing and turning bad?
Tossing and turning reduces blood flow, which limits oxygen to the muscles
and tissues. The body compensates by moving. Unfortunately, these results
in less restful sleep, which in the long run can cause you to feel run down.
Its so easy to get the proper support: latex mattresses and pillows
let you, and your cells, recharge and renew. Your body will stay in REM or
deeper sleep longer.
10. How much sleep do I need?
Conventional wisdom says 8 hours a night, but children need more, and often,
as we age, we seem to sleep less. The best guide to how much sleep you need
is your own health. Many people sleep better with the simple addition of
a comforting sleep routine, physical exercise and stress relieving practices.
11. How do I know if Im not getting quality rest?
If you need an alarm clock or wake feeling anything but refreshed, youre
probably not getting the real rest you need.
12. Why is pressure relief important?
Pressure interrupts blood flow and oxygen to your extremities; causing the
tossing and turning that interrupt a good night sleep. Proper support and
alignment ensures your body gets vital nutrients to repair and restore itself
all night long.
13. Ive tried everything, but Im still not sleeping well, what
should I do?
Nutrition, lifestyle and other factors deeply affect sleep. Many people suffer
from sleeping disorders that can only be addressed by a professional, so
talk with your physician when rest isnt improved by good sleeping habits
and quality bedding.
14. Help! I cant figure out the differences between mattresses!
One of the most comforting things about latex for many consumers is the ease
of purchase. Without innerspring and coil counts to consider, you can let
the superior comfort and the supportive feel of latex foam cradle you for
life. Confused about memory foam vs. latex? Remember this: latex foam provides
up to 33% more pressure relief than other foam bedding, and that means better
