How latex foam is made

Superior Quality, The Dunlop Process
Compounding

100% Natural latex is extracted from the tropical rubber tree in a way that is similar to tapping a maple tree for syrup. 100% Natural latex, soaps and rubber curing agents are precisely mixed in a temperature-controlled tank. Quality checks are performed on Ph, viscosity and temperature.

Molding

The compound mix is injects into an aluminum pin core mold. The pins create our unique aerated cell structure.

Washing

Unlike other latex manufacturers, Ecolife washes every mattress core and pillow. The latex core is removed from the mold and placed into washing machine then rinsing with fresh water. Fresh water washes away residual soaps, curing agents and proteins. While washing process, the products are squeezed to less

than 40% of their total thickness to remove the maximum amount of residual materials from deep within the product. This vital step improves durability and comfort by removing residual soaps, curing agents, and proteins that could cause premature softening of the product.

Drying

The Mattress core is transported to a micro wave and radio wave dryer, which completes the curing process and removes any residual moisture. Ecolife is only one in Thailand who uses high technology drying process.

Quality Testing & Fabrication

Once dry, every mattress core undergoes a rigorous pressure/firmness/ consistency test to ensure all cores meet stringent quality standards with even density across the core. Cores are expertly cut and constructed to

meet our customers’ product specifications. Our fabrication facilities are able to create custom sizes and thickness.
