What is Talalay Latex Foam?

A Talalay latex foam is latex foam that's manufactured using a manufacturing process called Talalay. In the the Talalay process, only a small amount of latex compound is poured into the mold. The mold cavity is vacuumed to remove gaps in the mold and perfectly distribute the liquid foam. Air is infused into the latex compound and the most consistent open cell structure is created. The foam mixture is then flash frozen to lock the cell structure in place and to prevent the particles from settling.

Latex International's Talalay manufacturing process is a six-step production method. Every step of the process - from compounding to quality testing - is carefully monitored to assure that only the most consistent and durable latex foam in the world is produced. The process is eco-friendly since it uses only natural, biodegradable ingredients that come from renewable resources and water-based raw materials like natural latex, air and water. No harmful byproducts are released and every product made is cleansed in an exclusive five stage fresh water washer to ensure the removal of residual latex proteins and curing agents. Every product undergoes extensive quality testing to meet standards that far exceed our competitors:

    Disclosures:

    1. In the manufacturing process, latex is poured in and released out of a Twin XL mold that is 40"x80"x5.6". This explains why Full sizes, 54"x75", and larger will come with glued seams. Being not cost effective, Queen molds are used on rare and limited basis only. While we do have seamless Full and Queen sizes on uncalculated occasions, we cannot guarantee seamless Fulls and Queens to be available. If you may have unusual nerve sensitivities, please contact us if you prefer to special order a seamless Full or Queen topper for any reason. The glued seams, however, are guaranteed not to fall apart under normal use and shouldn't be easily perceived by most people when they are lying down on it, especially if placed inside a mattress cover or pad.
    2. Note that these toppers are mattress components and may sometimes come with cosmetic imperfections that may be visible if the foam is to be left uncovered. Small tears that could have occurred during manufacturing (usually in the process of releasing these foams from the mold) can be expected. Flakes or flashes along the edge, yellow stain-like spot (really just concentrated coloring), light brown stains from dryer marks, and air bubbles are normal for these natural products. Dull blade cut, occasional markings by the manufacturer can also be expected at times. While we uphold high quality standards of inspection here at www.sleeplikeabear.com, we also believe in minimizing environment waste so that these imperfections are usually acceptable to us. We believe that these imperfections will not affect the performance of the foam and are not considered as defects. At www.sleeplikeabear.com, you are guaranteed that you will be receiving only the highest quality available and brand new latex foam mattress components-not returned! We also offer a 30-day money back satisfaction guarantee on all of our latex foam products so that you can return these products for any reason you may have during the guaranteed period.
    3. The dimensions of the foam may  vary +/- 2 inch from the advertised width and length. Some tolerance in thickness also apply. www.sleeplikeabear.com buys only first-hand and the best quality foam products directly from Latex International, USA. To obtain further information regarding the seams on these toppers, you may call Latex International West: 1-888-LATEX US, ext. 710 and ask about these products. 

    Warranty on TalaTech and Celsion latex foam toppers is 20 years non-prorated against body impressions, poor quality and poor workmanship. Warranty on our 100% Natural Latex International latex foam products is 10 years non pro-rated. Coverage does not include cosmetic imperfections disclosed above and does not cover normal wear and tear nor damage resulting from abuse or misuse. Since these mattress components are sold without cover, it is the customer's responsibility to protect it properly to keep its intended useful life. Use or placement of these toppers directly over damaging uneven surface or mattresses with none or not enough central support may affect the performance of these toppers and may void the warranty.

    In the event of a sub-first quality product, Latex International will fully stand behind these products that you would purchase from us. If unrepairable, we will replace the item with a brand new item similar to the item that's returned, if not a better or newer model in case the exact equivalent is unavailable. If the customer wishes to exchange the item for something else or refuses a replacement, the claim will be instead treated as money-back satisfaction guarantee and must instead meet the requirements of our 30-Day Money Back Guarantee
