Visually identifying latex mattress cores

Is there a way to identify various types of latex mattress cores like, 100% Natural Dunlap, Blended Dunlap, 100% natural Talalay and Blended Talalay?


Hi Keyser,

There really isn’t a reliable way to do this. Even experts in the industry would have a hard time doing this, and it would be a combination of many factors that would lead to their conclusions, not just looking at the product.

The cell structure difference between Talalay and Dunlop is usually easier to spot, but shot of a label placed on the latex you would receive, you’d have to rely upon the information provided you by your retailer/manufacturer who is supplying you the product for most people to reliably differentiate between blended and natural latex.
