Latex rubber cushioning was invented in 1928. Latex Gold was researched and processed in New Zealand from 1953.
Latex Gold is made from 100% natural rubber extracted from the Heveo Brosillensis tree, a renewable resource grown in South East Asian countries, The natural milky juice of the rubber tree is processed to form a soft yet durable material. The honeycomb consistency gives the rubber a true sponge like quality, which has yet to be equaled.
The latex rubber is extracted from the rubber tree through an environmentally ‘soft’ process. Rubber tree plantations are carefully maintained and renewed whenever required. Research has shown that as the demand for natural rubber has increased, so has the reforestation of rubber plantations. This is preserving significant forest areas essential to the conservation of the earth’s biosphere. The latex flows from cuts in the bark of the trees and is collected in small cups from which it is regularly transferred to larger containers, Ammonia is added to prevent bacterial decomposition.
A Latex Gold latex mattress brisbane is 100% biodegradable, hygienic, hypoallergenic, dust-free, contaminant-free and a non-toxic product. Latex Gold Latex Mattresses are comprised of a network of millions of ultra micro cellular structures distributed across the whole block, This is made possible using the latest micro vent technologies, which further promotes natural breathing and longer product durability. Latex Gold Latex Mattresses have been orthographically designed to cater for optimal posture and lumbar support.
What’s the difference between Latex Gold and synthetic rubber?
The differences between Latex Gold and synthetic rubber are considerable, Quite simply, Latex Gold is natural and synthetic rubber is not. Some manufacturers using the ‘talalay’ process use a very different component than natural rubber.
They use synthetic rubber, which can be made from raw materials derived from substances such as coal, oil, natural gas, and acetylene.
Latex Gold has a clear philosophy regarding synthetic rubber and that is “We don’t and won’t use petrochemical materials in our rubber”.
How long will it last?
Direct Ultra Violet light is often the cause or rubber perishing, but because in all applications the rubber is covered with a mattress fabric, Latex Gold will not break down, Latex Gold has the capacity to withstand hard wear without collapsing or losing it’s shape.
Is latex gold odorless?
The best way to check this is to smell a Latex Gold pillow, mattress, or in store sample containing Latex Gold. Raw latex is odorless and any compounds used in the processing of rubber are washed from it.
Does Latex Gold get damp?
On average, a sleeper loses one pint (400 milliliters) of water each night. Latex Gold does not absorb dampness from the atmosphere and because air circulates continually through the rubber, moisture is dissipated,
Does Latex Gold get hot?
Latex Gold rubber is very porous and as the rubber is compressed and released, air is circulated around the material. The pin core construction promotes the flow of air through the mattress. The reputation that rubber has for being hot has been in connection with impermeable surfaces such as groundsheets, airbeds, etc, as these are made up with an unbroken solid surface that does not breathe and as such, cannot be compared.
Does Latex Gold have harmful chemicals in it?
In the manufacturing process of Latex Gold the components used are not notably toxic, Our production staff are not required to take any special precautions when handling the ingredients. Latex Gold is non-toxic and environmentally safe.
