Learn More About Talalay latex →

We offer an extensive line of bare latex sheets (or layers commonly referred to as mattress cores and toppers), which are the high-end raw components used in building the highest quality mattresses and toppers.

Not all Talalay are the same. Below, we will compare our Talalay latex to help you understand their likes and differences among our brands and models below:

Talatech® ClassicCelsion™Talatech® Natural (100% Natural)RejuveniteClassic European100% Natural European

LIKES: 

  • QUALITY: All our Talalay latex, Talalay and Dunlop latex included, are of fine quality made only by two largest known manufacturers. NOT CHINESE LATEX.

  • COLOR: All our Talalay latex, are off white in color.

(Note: The shade may vary slightly with different production batches. All our latex look very similar in color. While we try our best to describe our latex products, some of our pictures may not always show the exact color accurately.)

  • ODOR: All our Talalay latexhave sweet smell. The intensity is subject to the individual's sensitivity to odors, and it varies by how much the latex has been aired out; Odor fades out to the point that it is not noticeable.

  • LATEX ALLERGY: Note that true latex allergy is usually activated by proteins that are found in natural/botanical latex. The blended latex will have less proteins than the 100% natural latex. The Talalay process involves multiple-stage washing that any allergens and excess latex proteins. 
  • EXPOSURE TO SUNLIGHT AND UV RAYS: All Talalay latex contain natural latex proteins that get damaged by the sun and ultraviolet rays. The degree of damage will depend on humidity and the amount and length of exposure.
Do not try to wash your latex and/or hang dry it in the sun or in a room where sunlight and fluorescent light are abundant.
  • ILD TEST & MEASUREMENT: The testing and measurement of the actual ILD is standard across all of our Talalay latex foams. The ILD ratings vary from one brand or model to another, and the ratings cover a range of ILD's that the manufacturer has set forth in production.

Our scale below shows how our Talalay products compare with one another based on their ILD ratings.
