LATEX FOAM: The origin of the Latex is wet jungles of South America from the sap of a tree named Hevea Brasiliensis, which locals call RUBBER. In the middle of 19th century, Charles Goodyear invented the process of vulcanization of rubber. This opens endless possibilities for the use of latex / rubber in the manufacture of various products. Characteristic of Latex Foam is the unique molecular structure that allows extreme stretching - up to 200% without damage or change their original properties. Although Latex Foam mattresses are used for more than 70 years, first as layers in the traditional spring mattress, it is still the most preferred material for mattresses used in prestigious models
TECHNOLOGY: Latex is collected in liquid form by hand, then poured into large containers where filter and carefully remove foreign particles. Then poured into molds, mixed with water and air bubbles, then heated and cured, a process in which liquid material is converted into a flexible solid.
ADVANTAGES OF LATEX FOAM: Latex Foam mattresses have a unique feel. Another unique characteristic of Latex is that it is almost indestructible. Instantly meets the body shape, ensuring proper position and supporting the spine. Excellent air circulation. Excellent temperature control. It is heat sensitive and retains its qualities in any temperature. It appears less strain on the body, leading to less rotation and adjustment, the result - a peaceful and rejuvenating sleep. High durability - 10 year life of the mattresses is not unusual for quality mattresses of Latex Foam. They are inherently anti-microbial, dust incontinence, anti-mite and allergy resistant.
MEMORY FOAM: Memory Foam was developed as part of a project of NASA in 1970, some see its use for medical purposes to relieve tension on the body and distributes pressure by larger area in different zones and points.
TECHNOLOGY: There are several reasons why Memory Foam is so unique. The first is the way Memory Foam cells deform when pressure is applied. Unlike standard foams, which after compressing they try to return immediately back to its original shape, Memory Foam cells spread of air pressure in the neighboring cells. This pressure distribution through a larger number of cells of Memory Foam, reduces tension and pressure on the body. This ability to form the body is memory foam. Secondly, the Memory Foam is temperature sensitive. Which means that at lower temperatures is harder (more viscous), while at higher temperatures it is softer and more responsible (more elastic). Hence, Memory Foam is also called, visco-elastic memory foam (not to be confused with high elastic foam). This temperature sensitivity eventually leads to a sense of "envelopment" of the body from the mattress. However, such mattresses are not made entirely from Memory Foam. Memory Foam is a soft material and need t o be combined with more solid, firmer basis. So he performs best when it is as a layer over a solid supporting materials. Therefore you'll find memory foam as 2, 3, 5, etc. cm layer on a firmer basis, Latex Foam or Polyurethane Foam.
ADVANTAGES OF MEMORY FOAM: Has all the qualities of the Latex Foam mattress plus Memory Foam. Better sleep because of the better position of the spine. The lack of sagging posture, compared to spring mattresses. Naturally resistant to dust mites and other microorganisms as a result of materials used. Temperature sensitive material which softens from body temperature. In other words, will become softer, when you lie on it due to body temperature. Superior air exchange, which allows prevention of unpleasant feeling hot. High durability.
COMPARISON BETWEEN MEMORY FOAM AND LATEX FOAM MATTRESSES: Latex Foam responds similarly, but it is made of many different materials, compared with Memory Foam. There are many similarities between Latex Foam mattresses and Memory Foam mattresses. However, Latex Foam mattresses are usually harder and more resilient than Memory Foam mattresses. Some people may prefer a Latex Foam mattress compare mattress with Memory Foam. Both are hypoallergenic, prevent the retention of dust mites, take shape and contour of your body and help improve sleep and calm.
Both mattresses - Latex FOAM and Memory Foam have better resistance than other types of mattresses. Since they do not have springs or other substances, provide support to the body in a natural way. Latex Foam and Memory Foam mattresses are the best choice for people who are allergic and suffer from asthma because these mattresses are dust-resistant and anti allergy. Improve circulation in the body. People suffering from chronic fatigue and back pain is recommended to use Memory Foam mattress. Both types are good at providing comfortable sleep. Ultimately, this is a personal choice of user, depending on the specific needs and what he found more suitable for himself.
POLYURETHANE MATTRESSES: Mattresses are presented based on three factors: continuous, convenience and support the body. Polyurethane Foam dates from 1950 years, using as a layer in the traditional spring mattress. One of the biggest benefits of Polyurethane Foam is resistance of body weight. The disadvantage is loss of height due to fatigue of the mattress over time. Polyurethane Foam can lost between fifteen and twenty percent hardness over their lives, as mostly happens at the beginning of the life cycle of the foam. This means that Polyurethane Foam mattresses not longer after you bought them "mellow", but do not change much thereafter. Almost every mattress on the market include Polyurethane Foam. This versatile, predictable material is very useful and can provide a really comfortable sleep.
