## Latex Mattresses: The Talalay Method of Making Latex

There are two methods of making latex for latex mattresses. The oldest method is the Dunlop method, which I covered in a previous blog. The newer method, which is used primarily for making synthetic latex, is the Talalay method.  Although the Dunlop method is the primary method for making all-natural latex, it gets a bit more confusing when you learn that the Talalay method can also be used for making not just synthetic latex, but natural latex too.

## The Dunlop Method of Making a Natural Latex Mattress

There are two different methods for making a latex mattress – the Dunlop method and the Talalay Method. In this blog I am going to talk about the Dunlop method.

The Dunlop method is the original and longest (in terms of how long it has been used) method of making latex.  It is used primarily for making natural latex.  (The Talalay method is mostly used for making synthetic latex, but can be used to make natural latex too.)
