So, what is the difference between Dunlop versus Talalay method?
|General History||1929 (E.A. Murphy UK)||1935 (Russia)|
|Engineering||Dunlop tends to be a simpler and less expensive method to manufacture.||Talalay is a method that requires fewer raw materials during manufacturing.|
|Texture||During the baking process, sediments in the mixture “settle” towards the bottom, making the final product much more firm on the bottom.(2)||Talalay has a more consistent cell structure, making it more soft and fluffy.|
|Buoyancy/Springy||Customers say Dunlop is more bouncy and buoyant since it doesn’t quite sink like Talalay does.||Customers often say Talalay is much springier, because of its consistency.|
|Air Circulation||Dense foam tends to have less air circulation within latex—however the convenient larger pinholes balance air circulation.||Talalay tends to be breathable, making an excellent choice for those who sleeps “hot.”|
|Support||Because of the “settling” effects of Dunlop creating a firm layer on the bottom,there is a higher, desirable quality of support factor.(2)||Comparing Talalay with the same density and size of the Dunlop, Talaly is much softer and springier. However, our firmer Talalay can also provide support when needed.|
|Sleeping Positions||Because of the engineering, the top part of a Dunlop latex is soft enough to release pressure point on the body.||This tends to be the most preferred comfort layer of a mattress.|
