Hello Peter, I just purchased a Stearns & Foster latex foam mattress....
...not from you, sorry. I didn't see you until now.
It was sold to me as a 100% latex mattress with a dunlop core
and talalay pillow top. After the mattress was delivered I noticed that
the tag said it was 84% latex, 14% polyurethane, and 2% various fabrics.
I've called S&F twice, and sent one email to them, but I have not been
able to speak with someone who has technical knowledge, nor has my email
been returned. Assuming the label is correct, where is the polyurethane
in the mattress, and why is it there instead of latex? What are the
advantages or disadvantages of polyurethane in this particular
application? Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Your reply is
extremely helpful. -Eric
I'm sorry you didn't buy from me. But then again, I'm not willing to lie to you to make the sale.
First, you can't quilt latex. The poly foam is in the quilt. The latex used is 100% synthetic. It's neither Dunlop nor Talalay. The other 2% is the outer fabric.
The tag on your mattress was also on the floor sample. You could have known what you were buying before you bought it...without having to rely on the veracity of the salesman.
Our Pure Bliss line is 100% all natural Talalay latex. And, our Ever-Eden line is 100% all latex...a combination of Dunlop and Talalay Latex. The cover is not quilted.
Here are links to the Pure Bliss and Ever-Eden lines.
