The advantages of latex foam bedding components
Latex foam mattress cores, sometimes termed foam rubber cores, consist
of a matrix of harder or softer foamed molecules. Most latex foam
mattress cores are a combination of natural and synthetic latex. Natural
latex is harvested by draining the sap of the rubber tree (hevea brasiliensis).
open-cell foam rubber matrix, which contains myriad
minuscule air bubbles, is made up of rubber molecules that react like
millions of microscopic springs.
The result is a highly
resilient material with unequalled
point elasticity and equal pressure distribution,
giving the sleeper optimal support.These excellent physical characteristics
are matched by outstanding hygiene and microbiological characteristics.
The latex foam is antibacterial
and antifungal, although no pesticides are used
The millions of interconnected microscopic
air chambers in latex foam ensure good heat insulation, optimal
evaporation of transpiration fluid and a constant
air circulation, creating good ventilation. Extra
ventilation channels are typically inserted in
the latex foam.The sleeper’s change in posture during the night
creates a pump effect that generates proper air circulation.
