I would repost this to the main forum as this is for questions about our products. I can say this, micro coils are not expensive but come with an expensive price. A 2" piece of latex is more comfortable and more durable than a micro coil and without the huge markup.

Graphite latex has no redeeming qualities above standard blended talalay other than it's easier to pass a fire test for the manufacturer. We had a sample sent to us by the manufacturer and within one year started to crumble and become very crusty to the touch. Because of that result I'm not going to use that particular product even though we are a latex specialist. Most companies can hide it within a non zippered cover and you will never see it but we use zippered covers so you can easily exchange a layer down the road.

Another idea is to work with the mattress you have and flip it over to the firmer side but then adding a 3" dual firmness latex topper. Firm for his side and soft for your side.
